Tree cutter called today. Said he had a bee tree down. Bring my trailer and come get it. He loaded it with a trac hoe and I brought it home. Couldn't get much easier.

XLB better eat a few more wheaties first. The neighbor's Kubota backhoe wouldn't lift it to take it off. It had to lift one end, drag it off, then stand it upright. It's over 6 foot.

OK, this will show my complete lack of understanding about bees. How does one get the bees from the tree to the new hive? You see, the books don't reference "bee trees".

I figure going at them like a chainsaw massacre maniac isn't the hot set up. Trap out?

You going to get the one fella that was standoffish to help out again?

Best I remember he finally came around at the end to lend a hand.

I still like to use a chainsaw myself

Other than the 2 experienced ones, I try to use different trainees each time. It gets more trained that way.

You may like the chainsaw, but the bees don't.........
