Cottonwood types (Populas sp) are candy to beavers but they fill all the other boxes. Any size tree can be cut in winter and "planted" into a post hole where the bottom extends into moist soil. I've had good success with 2-4" trunks as they are easily handled. This is a common riparian restoration method.Cage them as high as you can to discourage beavers. Beaver control may be necessary if your area allows. USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service office will help. I can get you a contact if wanted. Ditto some state Depts of Natural Resources.
