Caption: Man grafting a bing cherry (Prunus avium) during the winter dormant season. Grafting is a propagation technique, where a cutting, known as a stock, of a plant is fused with the hardy root stock of another plant of the same or similar species. There are many advantages to grafting, such as an increase in yield by creating dwarf trees, an increased tolerance to the cold and production of new cultivars. Photographed in Linden, California, USA.
