    cut the section of the tree with the bees in it and put it in a hive body upright and anchor it somehow. put foundation and some drawn with honey above it. the queen will lay in the comb above. l had a hive clean out the tree then l chucked the tree

    Once you do the cut out, split the section of log and you'll have a very neat conversation piece for the living room.

    what I did with a wind fall was to cut until you find the hollow,then open the tree in half.Take some brood and put it in a frame,rememberto put brood upright the same as it was when the stood.wrap frames with heavy string to hold in place.Set hive on top of bees with on bottom board.after dark set on other half and pick up to next night
