Going for a stroll on Hoylake Road East in Qualicum Beach might look a little different these days.
One resident has taken it upon themselves to decorate a monkey tail tree in their backyard with the ‘real’ thing.
When Tod Butler moved to Qualicum Beach 15 years ago, some of his first friends were some people who had a three-foot tall monkey tail tree in a pot in their yard, which they eventually gifted to him.
”Over the years it has grown and now stands at 12 feet tall,” he said. “During these hard times in quarantine George and his friendly friends have kept me busy ordering up bananas… hope this helps you with the history of the odd but humorous creation.”
