Beekeepers and the general public want to assist honey bees and other pollinators. Increasing

floral habitat beautifies right-of-ways, surface mine sites or suburban backyards, but

it also provides food to pollinators, reduce chemical use, and increase pollinator populations.

Filled with tips and advice, this book chronicles one person's "leap of faith" toward longterm

land management that blends forestry, politics, energy industries, and apiculture.

"Dr. Tammy Horn Potter is not just a leader in expanding the acreage of bee trees and

shrubs, she is THE leader in that field. Her work with mine reclamation areas in Kentucky

inspired us in West Virginia to follow in her footsteps. This wonderful book should be read

not only by every beekeeper, but also by everyone who cares about our ecology and environment.

Housing developments now take acres and acres of bee forage and turn them

into barren deserts for our bees. We need more people like Tammy. This book is all the

guide you need to help the honey bees and every other pollinator on the planet!"

-- Dan O'Hanlon

"Horn Potter weaves together her unique experiences reclaiming coal mines with pollinator

habitat. This book shows how forests can be 'sleeping giants of pollinator restoration.'

Filled with plant science and the character of the trees and plants suited to build forage

acres; memorable and practical tree knowledge every beekeeper can use."

"Tammy Horn addresses the significance of honey bees and pollinator-friendly trees--the

most important plants for spring colony build-up. As major nectar producers during the

honey flow, trees for bees are vital to nurturing the ecological and economical benefits of

honey and pollination as well as reducing soil erosion and improving air quaility."
