Lone Rock Point
Our purpose was to explore the natural environment by studying the bees and their relationship to tree pollination.
We took several tree cores from old apple trees near and around the bee hives. The apple trees in previous years had stopped producing normal apples. Since the bees had arrived near the apple trees two years ago, the apples have taken better form and are useable for use as apple sauce and cider.
We also identified many of the more common flowers surrounding the bee hives. We did this to see which flowers were more prominent because of bee pollination.
Overall we found multiple positive effects the bees have had on their environment.
New England Aster
(Hesperis Matron Alis)
The existing apple trees around the bee hives were approximately one hundred and twenty years old. Prior to the bees living in such close quarters with the trees, the trees produced poorly developed fruit.
Since 2000, the bees have improved the apples trees’ growth and ability to produce better fruit.
Lighter sap wood.
Darker heart wood.
