i work on this Japanese maple today. luckily, i spotted this yellow jacket inside the canopy. it built a next and already laid eggs in every chamber. i used tweezers to grab and kill it.
this is the japanese maple that i worked on today


and the yellow jacket inside and her nest





after light thinning. it is a clump and it is still a few years from showing

Hi Boon,

Very nice maple. Any chance of showing pics with no leaves? Those yellow jackets are nasty!

Is that one tree, or a forest? <g>

The insect is, BTW, a wasp. Still nasty. I'm dodging them everywhere this time of year. Generally speaking if you ignore them, they'll ignore you -- but inside a tree is a different thing.

It looks like this JP has a big trunk, please post up the tree after work.
Nice tree even before trimming.
