If I had a farm somewhere in NC and I wanted to keep bees, I would
probably plant some pollinator-friendly trees and crops. Trees especially,
since the native ones should just do well on their own and they've got
an extra dimension compared to cover crops. What plants would I collect?
Here's a proposed list:
- Tilia caroliniana
- Nyssa sylvatica
- Liriodendron tulipifera
- Robinia pseudoacacia
- Oxydendrum sp.
- Vicia caroliniana
- Milkweed/Joe-Pye weed
