Bee colony salvaged before tree removal on S. Washington

May 25, 2021; Bloomington, Indiana: Workers from Bluestone Tree prepare to save a honeybee colony in a tree that was being removed in the 700 block of S. Washington Street Tuesday. The workers removed the section of the tree where the queen bee was living and placed it on a flatbed trailer. The tree section was then taken to a location outside the city so the bees could be saved and relocated to a hive. (Photo by Jeremy Hogan/The Bloomingtonian)
