    Default Forest Service Apiaries

    Good evening everyone,

    I placed hives on forest service land (for fireweed) for the first time last year. Had a reasonably good experience.

    This year, I increased the total number of hives in my application to 80. The person I'm working with said that he thought their "specialists" would have issues with that number, and suggested I reduce to "smaller, more manageable" apiary sizes. He suggested that some of their specialists would have an issue with even 40 hives in an apiary. (40 hives is what I did last year as my test of the area)

    Maxing out at less than 40 hives seems extremely small to me, for an apiary that is being dropped directly on a strong flow. Has anyone else had this experience? If you place hives on forest service land, what is your standard apiary size?

    Thank you for your help,

    Peter

    Update on this: Forest service finally got back to me, and everything is approved.
