Beaver, God’s aquatic Engineer.  Louisville’s creeks and waterways have a lot of beaver in them.  Jefferson County is mostly low land and any water blockage can cause big problems with drainage and tree damage. Beaver can damage trees by cutting them down or chewing all the way around it.  Prolong flooding can cause damage or kill the trees.  Land owners are thrilled and amazed the beaver have taken up residence on the creek or pond until the damage starts.  The land owner then wants the beaver removed immediately! Beaver should be dealt with ASAP to prevent major damage.  Call ACT Wildlife Services for assessment.
