    The best method is to leave them alone and wish them luck. Cutting a tree just to get the bees is way more trouble than it is worth.

    Sure, but this isn't a swarm, even though it was once, most likely. The beego thing won't work as well as you might think. Keep your eye out for swarms. That's the way to go.
