That is very cool! I live next door to an active beaver pond and I noticed this morning while walking the dog they have started cutting on my property right at the edge of my (mowed) areas. Not sure if the toothy critter was disturbed but the sapling he cut was not dragged back to the pond as it was still lying on my lawn.
Lots of fox and several coyotes frequent the property...

Very cool. Kind of amazing how little a tree needs to stay standing. I'm sure it won't be for long though

OldCaveman thank you for sharing the photo like others i'm surprised the tree is still standing. May your buddy not have any serious problems from the beaver activity.

   Your right Jason,  the photo was taken Wednesday and the tree came down Thursday ( windy if I remember correctly).

Iíve seen them cut trees on the side of a road that the pond is next to it and drop them in the pond. They are very good at what they do.

   I believe that they don't finish the job, they are to smart. They let the wind take care of the dangerous part.

How is that even possible?  The laws of Physics are truly amazing!  Your talking about approximately three inches of tree holding up over a ton of weight.  Maybe two!  Again, how is that possible?  That would be like an ant holding up a car.  I know ants can carry more then their weight, but a car?  I cut down plenty of trees and they start falling way before they get cut that much.  The only way a Physics professor could determine the lbs per sq inch would be to measure the diameter of the the remaining tree and then "somehow" be able to weight the entire tree.   Virtually impossible, since some of the branches are going to fall off, felling it!  That is one of the most amazing things I have ever seen.  Mother Nature is truly incredible, and very surprising at times.  Thanks for the picture of a life time.  I would guess no one has ever seen that and never will again.

Never seen one crushed, but they definitely can't control where they fall. They miss the creeks and rivers they try to dam up all the time

I've seen it twice, once in person ( I was a ADC trapper for many years) and once in a national geographic documentary..

 I've been told it's usually the young ones ( under 2 ) that attack larger trees that are pretty much non edible,an old timer told me it was because "they didn't know any better" and the teeth on the young ones grow more rapidly than the older ones, so they need to chew even more, and thus pick the hard wood.. older , wiser ones, pick trees that are edible ( soft woods) and dont waste energy or time on useless timber..I've never seen that theory in print, but I have never heard a better explanation  either.

I think they sometimes fell trees, esp will, primarily for food rather than for dam or house building. Some seem to get overly ambitious---I saw a tree that was far to big for 1 person to wrap their arms around encircled with bite marks on the Toronto waterfront.
