In 2024 all member Associations and Branches have been given the opportunity to plant sesquicentennial trees in their apiaries, funded by the BBKA as part of the 150 year celebrations.  Honey bees, bumblebees and many other species depend on trees for food, and the BBKA trees will last well into the future - even another 150 years!

Bristol Beekeepers Branch Committee beside the Hawthorn tree planted at their apiary to celebrate 150 years of BBKA.  It is a bee friendly Spring flowering tree so they hope to help the bees through the Spring.  They plan to add a plaque later in the year.

Northamptonshire Beekeepers Association planted two 'Tillia Cordata' trees in their Association Apiary in March.  These are a native lime tree.
