Do beavers eat wood?

    Beavers will eat bark and twigs but they don’t generally eat the inner-wood which doesn’t have nutrients for them. Their gnawing on wood is generally for purposes of building their homes which are made out of wood.

    Some of the types of wood beavers eat are willow, cottonwood, birch, oak, aspen, and hickory bark and twigs.  Beavers chew with their bottom teeth while their upper teeth hold the wood in place.  They can actually chew through bark the size of a rolling pin in 30 seconds!
