Beavers provide many ecological benefits, but they can also be a problem for landowners and property managers. Beavers are unique in that they alter their environment to create and maintain their ideal habitat by cutting down trees and creating dams and ponds. They are often referred to as 'ecosystem engineers' because they maintain and enhance wetland ecosystems that provide habitat for fish, birds, moose, insects, and many other animals.
