It was absolutely covered in Honey Bees (not so much after 4pm). And had the most diverse array of forest dwelling wasps and other bees I've ever seen in one place.












And there were more I didn't get photos of.

I want this tree. I have never seen so many bees so happy on a tree.

I wonder if it would grow here in hot, dry Placerville.

Thanks for the beautiful photos

Dallas, I think that you are right, Sumac.  We have the Staghorn Sumac, but the flowers are red (dark pink), I have heard bees love Sumac, I am going to go and see if they are having a great time on mine.  Have a wonderful day. 

Those pictures were absolutely astounding.  I love all the different species that obviously were having the time of the life, drinking nature's miracle.  Have a wonderful day, Cindi

The draught prevented my winged sumac from producing alot of nectar this year.  Bees were all over my trees last year. 

The winged sumac flowers later than the other two sumac trees.  I beleive the August 2006 American Bee Culture had a great article on sumacs.

It grows like a weed! I dont know if its in all lower 48, but I would be surprised if it weren't. Considered to be a nuisance tree by many cities. Never knew it was a bee tree. NICE. They are everywhere around here.
