Trees for Bees

Flowering trees are great for pollinators! They provide high levels of pollen and nectar that bees need for their existence. Tammy Algood is at Rock Bridge Trees in Bethpage Tennessee to show off some beautiful trees that are very supportive of pollinators.

Plants Featured in this Clip

ILEX glabra (Inkberry holly)
TILIA cordata (Little Leaf Linden)

Gardener Extras

  1. Little-leaf Linden are susceptible to Japanese Beetles. They can skeletonize foliage. Mature trees have been destroyed by a heavy infestation.
  2. After the leaves fall off the Ivory Silk tree, the dark red bark adds an interesting dimension in the landscape.
