I am new to the forum and looking for some advice.
My grandfather has had a small tree in his garden for the past 30+ years. Im not sure what kind of tree (the story is it started from the seeds of an apple, however it never grew any apples). It was around 4 foot tall so not big at all.
Yesterday, my auntie decided to cut it down as it was getting in her way cutting the grass... everyone is devasted (I know its silly but we have alot of memories attached to it).
Today I managed to salvage from the garden waste bin the tree trunk (which has been dawn off top and bottom from the roots / branches) and also the roots (well what was left of them after being ripped out of the ground).
I have put the roots in a big pot with new soil, some root growth stuff and water (I have covered it completley so all that can be seen is soil.
I also have the tree trunk but not sure if this can be rescued...
Any advice on how to rescue the tree would be much appreciated!
I have also taken a few of the very thin branches (more like twigs) and put them in a plastic bottle with around 2 inches of water. I seen online these may begin to sprout white things after 2:3 weeks and can then be put sticking up in soil...
