I am wondering can you take a cutting from a Cherry tree and root it and plant it to make another Cherry tree?

Be forwarned - Cherries are one of the hardest trees to root. Use new growth and take tip cuttings 6 to 8 inches long, and dip the cut end into rooting hormone and place the cuttings into a container filled with moistened potting soil. Without going into a long discussion here, you can visit the following website for detailed information on taking and rooting cuttings:

Good luck with your project.
