Bee tree removal photos
« on: July 26, 2011, 02:13:34 PM »
Hi all --

It helps when urban beekeepers seem less like eccentrics and more like contributing members of normal city life, so we really treasured the chance to help both the bees and our fellow citizens last week.

The city of Washington DC called out to us for help in preserving a feral bee colony while removing a tree that has been dropping bits on a busy sidewalk.  We ended up making friends with guys in bucket truck packing chain saws (always nice to know!), the neighbors, and the city council.  You can see photos at two sites that I am running past the webmaster here

Cheers,

Toni

My apologies -- I got an email bounce and was sure I was doing something wrong.

My profile shows only a few posts, but I have been a member since 2005, so I figured I really messed up somehow!

Yes, though the real mover and shaker here was Scott, former president of a local beekeeping club and the guy in the red shirt.  He had done this 3 times before and led the whole process.

Totally awesome Toni!  I would love the publicity you would get around here from a cut out like that.  I know the local news channels would have ate that up soon everyone would know who you are.
