Single Unit Bee Shelter


A pruned tree branch, with a narrow tunnel drilled through its center, has the potential to become a nesting site for a solitary bee.

This project aims to explore the potential for a mutually beneficial relationship between urban trees, solitary bees, and humans in the local environment. Specifically, this project proposed to facilitate a partnership between a tree pruning company and a beekeeper association to leverage the pruned branches during winter months to create shelters for solitary bees. By repurposing the pruned branches as bee shelters, this project not only provides a sustainable habitat for solitary bees but also promotes biodiversity and ecosystem resilience in the area.
