There are ways to protect trees on your property without destroying the beaver or its wetland ecosystem.
Beaver Dam Flooding
Beavers build dams for their own protection but these dams can sometimes cause problems for humans.
Learn how to control the level of a beaver pond and maintain downstream water flow.
Blocked Road Culverts and Drains
Beaver dammed road culverts and drainage structures are very common problems because a little damming makes them a big pond.
Fortunately, many options exist to cost-effectively and nonlethally resolve these issues.
The near extinction of beavers led to widespread stream erosion, incision and watershed damage.
