I needed a place to put a couple hives, so I contacted a friend who owns some property that would be a good location. He told me to feel free to put as many hives as I wanted there. He told me that he had bees on the place many years ago and that there should still be some hive stands there I could use. Indeed there were. Below you see the before and after photos of the stands. Since they were constructed with drill stem, they are still very usable.
