    As a beginner, pass on the tree. Most professional bee removal outfits will avoid trees at all costs - with the exception of assistance in cutting down the tree.

    You're looking at thousands of pounds of potentially deadly force since bees naturally make their homes in the hollows of decaying trees. Is this really worth $20 in bees? If you want to get started in beekeeping, call a local pesticide outfit. Most conscientious outfits all too happy to send you swarm calls. Just be sure to act on those calls within 30min - 2 hours.
