Coupled with the occasionally heavy rains and mild temps we've had extreme tides as well, which tends to refloat a lot of previously beached debris, and moves it farther as well. The larger rivers also add to the mess in heavy runoffs - we've seen literal "islands" of uprooted trees floating in Howe Sound after some of our classic subtropical-fed spring storms.
