Got a call from the president of our county bee club wanting to know if I was interested in a bee tree, I said "sure, why not". She gave me a phone number to the "tree guy" who actually turned out to be the city animal control officer, he gives me a number to the "tree guy" who turned out to be the electric company field foreman. He tells me the bees are about 40 feet in the air and has not seen it. We set up a meet and greet for 12:30. Got on site and sure enough a bee tree at about 40 feet, big old dead white oak tree, 2 1/2 foot at the stump. Looked like it had been topped years ago and has four big branches growing out of the crotch and the bees are in the crotch. House on one side and power lines on the other, they are wanting to save the bees. My suggestion was to stuff a burlap sack into the entrance and trim the big limbs off until we can cut the main trunk down to size. Now the City of Oak Ridge, the electric company and the tree trimmers have to talk to the higher ups and will let me know in a couple days. I thought it was kind of funny how Anderson county got a hold of Knox county club for a bee tree, and I live just inside of Loudon county. to be continued..................................
