I planted 6 apple trees a few years ago. All but 2 are doing well, but those two were scraped badly by a buck deer. There happens to be an old farm nearby with some old apple trees (red apples) that are just the best apples I've ever put in my mouth. They are also great cooking apples. I want to graft some scions off those trees using my two deer rubbed trees as stock. The ones I want to use for stock are a little over one inch diameter below the rubbed spot. Can someone tell me how to accomplish this? I have found some web sites explaining the procedure, but would still like some practical advise, if anyone has any to offer. Thanks.
