How to Save the Bees with Trees

No matter where you get your news, you’ve probably heard that the bees are in trouble. Thankfully, with some amazing efforts, there are a few things that you can do to help your local bee populations and today we’re going to go over some of the ways you can make that happen. Let’s take a look.

Give Them a Place to Pollinate

The first thing you can do to support your local pollinators is to give them a place to do their work. Native trees and plants are excellent sources of food for local colonies of bees. Though exotic plants may be lovely for us, they are not as ideal for our local wildlife, so make sure you keep some native plants in your landscaping plans. This should include hybrids, as they are often sterile and don’t produce a whole lot of pollen. Along with the pollen, trees also provide a home for bees where possible.

Avoid Pesticides At All Costs

Though not all pesticides lead to colony collapse, some will and, at the very least, they’re not great for anyone involved, least of all the bees. If you’re having trouble with pests, try and use some natural methods of deterring them. A trained arborist can help you determine the right methods for keeping the bad bugs away from your trees without harming the beautiful buzzing bees. In fact, an arborist can help you with all manner of tree-related issues from diseases to pests, and everything in between.
