Wetland Regulation, Beaver-style

Millennium Park, West Roxbury, MA
If beavers followed local wetland regulations, they would have filed a Notice of Intent before they took down these trees.
Beavers created this trail when they dragged logs to the water
And a waiver request for work within the 25 foot no disturb zone.
More beaver-cut trees
And planted two trees for each one they took down.

I don't think they would have been allowed to proceed with their new construction on the riverbank.

Of course, we have our ways of regulating wetlands, and they have their own.
