Tree Wasp (Dolichovespula((Pseudovespula) Sylvestris

Observations were between the 8th and 28th July 2013 at the Wolseley Wild Life Centre, Staffordshire. At the time I was unaware of the identity of the Wasp, on finding out that they were Tree Wasps I was puzzled that they building a nest underground. One of the photos shows the earth disturbed by animal action, revealing part of the nest. They did a good job mining and building underground, why call them a Tree Wasp?
