TreeBeeRescue highlights the honey production side of the traditional hobbyist’s beekeeping ethos and in these modern times where we need to go for environmental conservation, which is not necessarily more beekeeping but to promote more of a custodial ethos.
Investigate climate change and how the green industrial revolution is impacting our native honeybees.
Flower meadows provide extra nectar which the honeybees pollinate but they also need to remain as homes to go to and we need to highlight how these existing homes can be conserved.
This does not necessarily require preserving the whole veteran tree. At TreeBeeRescue we are combining traditional beekeeping methods and equipment with veteran tree logs to meet nature halfway, to still produce honey but in a more sustainable way.
Learn about where and how honeybees live in the Northern Hemisphere and how that compares to tropics.
