Oh yeah, every autumn and sometimes winter I always see their destruction here and there. They do it in patches seasonally then it "heals" up.
But hikers are - most of the time - move on a lane all year round so their impact is continuous not leaving time for natural restoration. Here these poles aren't truly popular I see few people with those. Also I don't know about the usage level of the American trails. What I read here and there the official hiking tracks like the Appalachian Trail the article mentions can be very busy with traffic.
However as I see it the article raises potential problems which need further investigating.
Yeah, I read/heard/seen somewhere beavers can be a pest.>Why they don't consider humans same part of nature as beavers or boars?
I feel the same. I see people frequently think about humans as outsiders and the results of our doings as unnatural. But we are the product of nature and use the resources of nature to create stuff like beavers for example.
And I'm not saying we should dump all the chemicals into our rivers because it's natural...
