Collecting a tree


I have a couple of questions regarding collecting trees. Have read plenty about it online already, but i would really like some of your input also.

  • If i collect a tree and i want to trunk chop it above the branch that is planned to be the new leader, do i plant it into a container (pumice) or i should plant it in the ground (regular soul obviously)?
  • Is there any need for the collected tree to have any leaves?
  • Can i collect a tree and trunk chop it bellow the last branch (chopped tree would then be without branches) and hope that the new branch will start growing from the trunk?

I am talking about deciduous trees. Maple, birch, beech, maybe oak. Have found couple of these in nearby forests.
