    Default Trees For Bees

    I have several acers and considering planting trees for the bees. I already have a few sourwood trees in the ground and was wondering what other kinds of trees would be good and make good honey?

    As new bewekeeper, I read the preceeding thread on trees that are beneficial for the honey bee. I have a few willows, maples, blk locust, and several poplars surrounding my bee yard. Are these good sources of early pollen/nectar? I'm in upstate NY.
