First noticed this a few days ago along the North Fork on 7th street — looked like beaver activity — but beavers aren’t common here. The chips were too evenly distributed around the base of the trunk to have been done with an axe or hatchet — so no certainty of what was going on. This isnt something someone in a car would notice, and it was difficult to see from a bicycle.
A few days later this was found
Whatever it was was successful in felling the tree — looking more and more like beavers
The trunk of the tree is to the left of the stump mostly obscured by the weeds
Remainder of the tree — signs of gnawing here too
Something gnawed on the tree leaning toward the stream
After looking into the subject, it does appear to be beaver activity
Any other ideas?

Winter storm Bruce didnt affect us with snow, but the winds sure did, gusts to 50mph reported — no cycling for a few days now. Want to ride back down there and see whats going on.
