The term "Engrafting" comes from James 1:21 of the Bible where Christians are instructed to grow by the engrafted Word. The term means,
"To transplant a limb from one tree or bush to the trunk another." This technique is used especially for fruit trees where limbs from a
dying tree can be inserted into a notch trunk of a healthy tree. Here’s a photograph of a cherry tree that had limbs from a white blossom
cherry tree onto a red blossom cherry tree.
