Hi I live in zone 3b/4
I started some westcot cot trees last year.i noticed last year I tried grafting a few branches and the wood of the apricot tree is very dry with what looks like barely any cambium ????
The over wintered only budding from trunks and few buds so far. I've been pruning branches they seem so dry but I remember from last year they were like that in middle of summer.
I've also got alot of plums cherries ect they have very green branches that are very flexible .

My question is are apricot trees very dry hard wood compared to the other prunus or did mine suffer bad winter injury
