Nature notes and photos from BC, Canada, mostly in the Lower Fraser Valley, Bella Coola, and Vancouver Island.
Could it be a pacific crabapple, Malus fusca? Those are on Vancouver Island, and are salt tolerant and can live in estuaries. I have one in my side yard, and after more than 10 years, it finally bloomed for the first time this spring. Very pretty balls of small white flowers.https://www.for.gov.bc.ca/hfd/library/documents/treebook/pacificcrabapple.htmhttp://wnps.org/landscaping/herbarium/pages/malus-fusca.html
