Caption: Grafting. Young shoots being grafted onto an apple tree (Malus sp.). The existing branches have been cut across and several shoots (scions) have been attached to them. Yellow grafting wax is used to seal the join and prevent damage. Grafting is done to confer properties such as hardiness to trees. The stock tree may be hardy but produce poor fruit. By grafting on branches from a tree which produces plentiful fruit but is less hardy, the two desirable properties may be combined in one tree.
