It looks like some people sell the "Osmanthus fragrans" honey, so bees probably get something out of them! Not sure if they help pollination or not - perhaps these trees self or cross pollinate without the help of the flying wonders...

I have a couple of 20 foot plus specimens which get worked heavily.. unless the tulip poplars are blooming. They are quite nectar rich.
