I pruned the lower brances of our maple and aspens to make them grow as trees. Is it possible to re-plant these branches to have more trees (they are in water pending your answer)?

It is possible that the branches will root in the water. While you're waiting, try taking a few tip cuttings, as well. You'll need 4-6" of new tip growth. Strip off the lower leaves, leave the upper leaves, and dip the cut end in rooting hormone. Then set them in a container of moistened potting soil set outdoors in a shady spot. Out of your collection you should have a few that will root for you. Hope so!
