I did just that graft with several partly girdled trees one time and it 
worked fine.  The graft is visible only as a small ridge on the trunk 
now.

I have apple tree whose root has sent up a sucker, probably because I 
suspect there's crown gall somewhere underneath the graft.  Question is 
as both the tree and the rootstock are leafed out, could an inarch 
graft be done using this rootstock sucker?  I was thinking of lifting 
the bark on the tree, and have sliced the rootstock off as if whip 
graft, and removing any other growth from the sucker insert it in the 
bark and tie down.
 
Any chance it would work?  Alternatives anyone could suggest?
