A family member bought an in town house in MA last year. In early August crowds would appear to watch the trees on her sidewalk come alive with bees. Apparently the humming/buzzing can be heard from a distance. The folks in the town call their house the 'bee house.'

Anyone have any thoughts what kind of trees these are? They are not small. To me they kinda look like huge hydrangeas. marktree1.jpg marktree2.jpg marktree3.jpg

That sir is what is known as a bee bee tree (Tetradium) Also known as Korean Evodia, this tree was brought to the U.S. for the landscape and nursery trade. It is still being sold for such purposes, although it is not overly common in the trade yet.. Highly prized by beekeepers as it blooms late when most have dearth. Very good honey from them and plenty of it too.
