variety of tree?

Do you mean is that a wooden tree, a polytree, or a plastic tree?

looks like a wooden type of tree, possibly ash, as wood-peckers like to nest in them, looks like the bees have occupied a former wood-pecker cavity, but a wider shot of the tree wood be handy!!

If their cavity volume is limited in there which I suspect it might be, they are candidates for swarming again as soon as they build up. I would be putting bait boxes someplace nearby!
