Beaver Busy Before Winter
Beaver love aspen trees, more commonly called a poplar. Bark, buds and branches of the aspen tree are favorite.
This very large aspen tree is showing the strength of wood. The top of the tree is very branchy and heavy, yet less then a third of the truck is left.
When the beaver returns it will have to be very careful to move away as the tree falls. It is going to fall right on to a road as another one had done maybe a week before.
