The little trees were seedlings that I grafted last year in pots and planted in the orchard.  The pictues with green name tags are different scions that were all grafted onto a small hass tree already growing in the orchard.

Its getting hot here and getting late to be grafting.  Today I went to GregA's house and tried to do one last avocado graft for the year.  I only had one seedling left to graft and have already tried and failed to make a copy of this tree of his.  So today I tried putting a side vaneer graft and then also inarched his tree onto the seedling.  The grafts were double wrapped with tree tape over the parafilm and then clipped up.  Hopefully it works...

Looks good.   Avocado takes well to side veneer grafting.

Nice, its great when things go as planned.  I had good luck lately but it looks like slugs or snails ate one new graft.  Some grafts look good then fizzle out too.  Once they get a normal size leaf its usually in the clear.

I did this in ground seedling a month or so ago based on your suggestion to vaneer it.  It started growing then it was around 102F here yesterday so it may have gotten cooked.  Will be interesting to see how all the grafts do in a week from now.   Ive got several small trees that were starting to grow that are totally unprotected in the sun/heat.  Its actually good to see just how much abuse they can handle.

Heres some pics of the hawaiian avo trees started last summer.  They are starting to grow nocely now.  Ive been trying to train them to have a main trunk with no branches for at least a foot or more.
