Is it too late to plan a cluster redbud tree?

I bought this tree early last week before the temperatures plunged. Can I still plant it this weekend when the temperatures rise? If not, can I still plant it next spring? If so, how do I store it for winter?

Eliminating Hornets

What's the best way to get rid of a hornet 'family'? I can't mow a portion of my back yard until they're gone. Now my hands are itching because of being stung between the thumb and 1st finger. I thought they were yellow jackets, but after researching 'stinging insects', it's a hornet!!! I'm on a fixed budget and need information on how to get rid of them in the most economical way.

Saving bees

We have an old silver maple tree in our back yard and bees have recently been making their home in a large home in the trunk of the tree. I do not want to kill any bees. They are precious but I was wondering whether there is any way to relocate their hive in the tree. It is very close to my deck and hot tub and I worry about getting stung.
