Feral Hive Found, What’s Next?

I found a feral colony of bees in a tree. The tree is in a park, not too far from a playground and next to residences. The location of the hive would need a ladder, but not too tall.

I am out of my league to deal with this hive removal, but I’d be glad to help. I’m thinking removal is the right thing to do to increase native habitat and decrease a source of diseases like AFB.

What’s the next step?
