Our local forest detectives have followed up on the damage and have come up with the following report:

 

 

“A bevy of beavers passed by the retention pond near Strategy Ct and “chewed down” about 12 small trees before moving on in early December. No real harm to the retention pond area.”

What a great reminder that we live in a living forest.

  • Did anyone actually see beavers? We have confirmed reports of Nutria and they are known to cause such damage. Nutria is classified by the state of VA as a nuisance animal that should be destroyed because of the damage they do to the environme.
