A beekeeper will try to remove a wild hive (from a tree, or a hole in the ground) by moving the brood (the bee eggs and larvae) and the queen bee into a portable box hive. Foraging bees will return to the box if it is left beside the old hive, and so long as the queen was moved into the new hive. After nightfall, when all the bees have returned, the hive can be sealed up and taken away.

Of course, the position of the wild hive will determine the difficulty of the whole operation.

I had a swarm set up their home inside the double brick wall of my house. A beekeeper set up a new hive outside with a new queen, and an inverted funnel on my wall. The funnel allowed the bees to come out of the wall, but they were unable to find their way back in, so they went into the new hive and adopted the new queen. Eventually (some weeks), all the bees emerged from my wall and into the new hive. The old queen probably did not survive, as there were no bees returning with nectar to make new honey.

Any method used, won't be bee friendly. However, your first contact should be a beekeeper.
