Beavertown, Adair Co., KY: Box elder beaver stump

2012-01-27 - Beavertown, Adair Co., KY - Photo by Billy Joe Fudge.
A Box Elder stump was left standing about 2 feet tall after beaver felled the tree for food and or building material. The stump will sprout and the suckers will provide some tender, succulent bark for Beavertown's residents in the coming years. While working on a wildfire at the base of the Grand Teton Mountains just outside Jackson Hole, Wyoming I saw beaver gnawed stumps 6 feet or more tall. Needless to say visions of beaver as large as a Great Wooded South Black Bear were dancing through my mind. Thankfully a local, probably stimulated by my ashen complexion and panicked look, explained there was 6 or 8 feet of snow in that area during the winter. Whew! - Billy Joe Fudge
