Larch raft ground layer

Hey friends, ground layering a larch is doable right?

How did this go if you pursued this? I would love to hear about it, as I am considering laying down a stylistically challenged tree in a larch forest I am working on.

So far so good, good callus but no roots yet. Hopefully by the summer!

Would love to see pictures. What size/age was the tree you laid down? What do you have it in? What if anything did you to the lower surface to expose and trigger the cambium layer?

Talk to seek is packed away in a greenhouse. But it’s about a 10-year-old larch. I did it to make a forest. I scraped the bottom in about 10 locations.
I’m getting buds swell so it should be good for the spring

@Paulkendo1 What species of larch? Japonese?

It was a weeping European
