I haven't tried rooting Evans cuttings, but in one of the earlier
discussions on the Evans, Bernie Nikolai indicated that it was pretty easy
to propagate from root cuttings. Mine regularly throws up a dozen or so
suckers every year for 5-10 feet out away from the original trunk, so with
this vole damage, I'll bet yours will be suckering like crazy this year.
USDA Zone 6
