joe, if it hadn't been for privet my bees would have starved by june this year. the rain ruined, clover and poplar and really messed up sumac too. sumac was my favorite honey when i was younger i was a little let down by how little my bees worked it this year.
i drove through the subdivision where i found the tree and a couple more near it and the tallow trees are everywhere. i need to find somewhere in the area to set up some hives. it would complicate things to do it, though. i'd have to cross state lines. i live in alabama and georgia and chose georgia to keep bees, go figure. i haven't decided what 'm going to do
