No, no...that is a Japanese Clearwater.  I've bumped into them many times while walking thru the woods.  I've been walking along then all of a sudden, BOOM, I've lost my balance and am stumbling.  I turn around to see what caused it and there it is...the ever famous Clearwater tree....almost as if it wasn't there.  Oh, but it is.  Why else would I have stumbled and lost my balance? :)

Ghost locust, the bees that have passed on work them, heard the honey is fantastic, albeit invisible. ;)

PM your photo to one of the moderators and they can post it for you.

As for you other guys, you ought to be ashamed. I hope your bees abscond over to mjb 1's house.  :-P

 :shock: :-D ;)

Being from Sc also I am curious to see what you got blooming this time of year.

Most likely a Privet of some kind.

Unless you are in the mountains and are seeing sourwood. But I think a little early for it yet but of course we were about two weeks early this year.

Chinese tallow, no doubt. Makes a wonderful tasting honey, amber in color.

Hey JP I remember in MS bud and I talked about how invasive they are. Looks like that one is planted in the landscape. Guess I will have them in my area of sc before long :-D

Just curious where in sc are you?

Midlands??? Are you a member of Mid-state beekeepers?

I am in Edgefield.

>Video says its invasive but my bees love so it stays.
I understand! It was a joke @ buds during our visit.

Get a load of this :? I have made a hive entry or two with an employee from the US Forest Service. They are trying to rid the US Forrest land of PRIVET!!! Wow So much for natural habitat, but I am sure the argument would be it was brought in from other areas and INVASIVE :shock:! I am sure it is about managing the pines.

No not in the club just don't have time for the meetings and stuff. The pine trees are all about the dollars they prescribe burn everything to insure their growth. I am not sure but i think the hybrid variety of pine they are growing now was introduced because it grows faster than the natural longleaf pine with less knots. Does that make it invasive? They sure do pop up everywhere.
