I believe that for some sensitive species, like stone fruit, quince, ceanothus, madrone and tender species in general, now is a great time to cut scions. It has been very cold and dry, so I've been chopping away. I should be able to bring some to the FPF/Scion exchange. Others don't really matter when you prune them as much, but it's a fine time, as the trees are quite dormant now.

John, great advice! I cut some for you already. They are in ziplicks in the fridge. I can give to you anytime.
It's also a good time to cut fig cuttings and start them, if you are into that.
I think I will add some grafts to a hybrid pear that I planted last year, from a multrigraft at my old place. Might as well make it self pollinating. Also my Rescue and Orcas pear trees have not fruited, so maybe they would benefit from adding varieties, too.
