Maine Beavers, They Can Be Your Best Or Worst Friend.
In our Maine real estate sales, we run into beavers.
Just going about their business and busy as a well, you know. Beaver. Not everyone feels the same about beavers who you would think show up on the list of varmits to avoid. To have to remove from your Maine land.
But consider you are a farmer in Lee Maine.
You have a dry summer and your plants need water badly. And if you had a Maine farm pond to use in the irrigation, that would mean bigger crop.
Saving the day for the farming operations.
To end up having plants to even harvest in the fall in some cases of drought.To give those thirsty shoots and sprouts some much needed moisture. When even the best rain dance summer gyrations end up with nothing wet from the clouds above.
No permits, no regulations hoops you or I would have to jump through for Maine land development. So that little marshland with a thread of a brook, small stream. If beavers moved in, voila, instant pond happens for irrigation. Water backs up, a playground pops springs into the landscape that did not show up on an earlier aerial.
If we wanted to play around with mother nature it is a long process. Not always with a happy ending and lots of red tape, costs.
But beavers are just doing their job. Being beavers. Don’t get fines. Not watched like a hawk or issued a summons.
Chomping, gnawing with what those large sharp teeth were placed in their heads to do. Designed for dam building. And although some have no beavers on their Christmas card list, some do.
Like other wildlife because beavers build a neighborhood some crave, desire. Need to survive. That give those excellent swimmers with the flat tail and once valuable pelts a big thank you.
Beaver dams provide a habitat for other plants, animals. And in this case of the Maine farmer, a water source that was not on the map. Not in the aerial picture the year before. This farmer in Maine was smart to contact the game warden.
And let him know if you have some misplaced beavers to relocate, that are a nuisance for others, bring them over to my farm in Lee, Maine.
Rolling out the VIP, red carpet.
The property owner that did not want to see hide nor hair of their beaver infestation was a blessing for another tax payer. With another take on having them next door. Take over on their Maine land.
Remember in past when nuisance beavers needed to find a new home from chewing up pretty white birch landscaping trees, eating flower gardens, Amity Maine seemed to be a destination. Less than 200 people, the Southern Aroostook County town a great witness protection location. Right on the Canadian border. No need for a passport. Not many people to bother if they stayed on this side of the Maine boundary either.
Another Maine animal that does lots of good is the lake loon.
There are three kinds of Maine loons that serenade, provide waterfront entertainment. Swimming by, singing or crying. A floating neighbor with families of babies that live on the lake islands. Sheltered places along the shoreland of a Maine lake. Ever wonder what those shrill, haunting Maine loon cries mean?
Because Maine is less populated, more wildlife lives here.
Away from the noise of cities, urban areas. All that traffic and pollution.
It is the same reason people flock here for vacations, for Maine retirement. And to enjoy lower cost properties, the Maine real estate listings.
In most cases being able to avoid a mortgage or have a low one on their new listing in Maine investment.
