Nice photos! I'm already dreaming of all that rich beaver pond soil sitting there just out of reach. It would be so tempting, but odds are that a pond of that size is delineated wetland and untouchable by all of us except the beavers.

Sometimes there are exceptions if it is private land when the goal is creating more permanent wildlife habitat. That's a question for the local fish and game department etc. In that case, we would love to jump in there and create something fun.

There is an opportunity for the landowner, however. They might be able to get their property value assessment reduced since they are no longer on waterfront property. The assessor doesn't need to be reminded the beavers will likely return to rebuild in a few years. That may sound funny, but we are continually surprised from these sitauations.

I'm looking forward to the before photo too, thanks!

I agree about calling it a "pond" It looks too shallow from the pics. Looks more like a swamp, bog, marsh.......but definitely not a pond. I'd be surprised if that held more than a couple feet of water, but like someone else said maybe the pics are not showing reality. Gotta hate those darn beavers

Sure you can share my thoughts! I posted my earlier note to share with your client.

It is definitely a pond since beavers tend to create large shallow bodies of water when they build a dam. A swamp would not serve their purpose.

In landscape ecology beavers do plenty of good work from flattening out run off hydrology to creating very productive meadows for vegetation as well as wildlife. There are many more benefits.
