We have just received the National Arborist Association
In a storm over the summer, an American beech (Fagus
grandifolia) fell at a client’s house. Inside the trunk was a
large natural beehive which needed to be removed in order to safely
remove the tree. Typically beehives are destroyed using pesticides.
However, once the bees die, bees from nearby hives raid it. As a
result, they carry pesticide residue home, which can kill their own
hive. Honeybees are, however, an integral part of the pollination
process. Without honeybees, plant reproduction is in jeopardy. Not
only do the honeybees help to pollinate landscape plants, but many
commercial fruit crops rely on honeybees for pollination. From the
plants in our landscapes to trees in commercial fruit crops, plants
are dependant on honeybee pollination for reproduction.
