I have just got a large juniper, semi prostate kind- from work, it has 2 trunks and on one, someone was going to take an air layer from it.
the layer has been on for 3 or 4 weeks but no roots are showing yet.
I have potted it just now, some roots have been trimmed and i,m going to prune it.
what will happen if I remove the cover and moss from the air layer? will that trunk die or will the bark regrow? or should I leave it then remove that trunk?




From other species' experience, and as the foliage looks OK. it should recover.
Otherwise, just leave until roots show, and then cut off and plant.
