is it possiable to grow acer tree,s from cuttings, if so when and how do you do this.



You can take hardwood cuttings. You need a heat propagator and not to keep the soil too damp and they are slow to root and the heat helps. Too damp and the cutting rots.

You can also try air layering. This involves putting compost in a plastic bag a little way along the shoot and waiting til roots appear. Then you can separate it from the parent plant.
