    I'm wondering if anyone has ideas about how to go about removing a colony from a hive built inside of a large white pine that cannot be cut down? It's on a golf course and the management wants it gone (after having been there for several years with no one ever reporting having been stung) and doesn't want to loose the tree. More of a rescue mission than snagging free bees.
