What is the proper way to propagate a maple tree?

There is a beautiful maple tree in my yard, and I'd love to have more. What is the correct way to propagate the tree?

Take a cutting 10 inches long when it is beginning to harden. Place the end into a rooting hormone compound such as Rootone. This will cause the cutting to eventually produce roots. Now place it into seed soil/perlite mixture to provide drainage. Keep it moist but not damp and in a bright location.

The first idea to keep in mind is that when propagating a maple tree, designating the right space for it is essential. Since many types of maple have intrusive root systems, it is important to plan out where a maple tree will sit.
