Can beavers chew through thick trees?



  1. 0 Votes

    The first link below shows some excellent photos of trees brought down by beavers, and all of these appear to be relatively small to medium-sized. They will take down ash, red and white oak, cherry, elm, cedar, pine–numerous types, even the extremely dense ironwood. The second link suggests beavers do in fact prefer small trees, 2 to 6 inches in diameter, though they can go through trees 3 feet in diameter. The animals may prefer to cut down and eat from these smaller trees since it requires less work and is probably safer for them, but I imagine they could gnaw through almost any size tree if they got the notion to do so.
