Strange question, but it's serious! I live on the New Westminster Quay and have noticed that an Arbutus about 6-8 ft tall has grown on the rock embankment between our building and the river. It looks really healthy and it would be great to see it grow there. But there is at least one beaver in the vicinity (I think it lives on poplar island), which we've seen when walking our dog at night. It has cut down other similar sized trees on the embankment, so I'm worried that the arbutus might be in danger. I don't know how the arbutus came to grow at this location, I haven't seen any others near here. The city of new westminster has planted various things along the embankment, so maybe they did it? However it got there, it is great to see it!
