Owning a Tree Hive 

     It is important to point out that this Tree Hive isn't just a box that anyone can buy at the click of a button. That would be irresponsible.

      Each Tree Hive is made to order after first exchanging some background information with the potential 'Bee Guardian':

  • Who is investing into it and why ?

  • Is the proposed location suitable?

  • Carry out a survey

  • How the hive is left to colonise naturally

  • What to expect once its occupied ie swarming, potential for disease

  • After service mentoring

  • The Tree Hive to be registered with Beebase as an 'unconventional hive', in an out apiary . This will facilitate for potential disease monitoring by the National Bee Unit, ie AFB within a 3 mile radius
