Ecology Challenges

When a new farmer in the state of Maine went into the Apple farming business, he awakened one morning to find that his entire crop was gone. During the night,
a beaver had munched through all the fruit trees, from top to bottom.

Lesson: Ecological issues include the weather and the habits of neighboring members of the animal kingdom, production, and transportation issues can disrupt many kinds of businesses. While it’s impossible to predict freak occurrences, learning about one’s environment, including patterns and history of interaction is crucial.

In the case of the apple farmer, proactive measures could
have saved the trees.
