Salix anatolica Ziel. & D. Tomasz., belonging to Salicaceae family, is endemic to the East Mediterranean in Turkey. Its threat category has been assessed as vulnerable based on the red list criteria of IUCN. Therefore, it is necessary to protect and reproduce. Within the scope of this study, propagation of the species is carried out by cutting which is one of the vegetative propagation methods. Under greenhouse media conditions, effects of different concentrated doses of auxins were examined on rooting percentage (RP), number of roots (RN) per rooted cuttings, and root length (RL) related to male and female stem cuttings. At the end of this study, the highest RP in the cuttings taken from the female individuals was 100% in Control and IAA 1000 ppm treatments, this value was also obtained as 100% in Control + Wounding and IAA 1000 ppm treatments in the cuttings taken from the male individuals. While hormone applications were effective on the RP in male individuals, they were effective on the RN and RL in female individuals. In addition, wounding has had a positive effect on both male and female individuals.
