Weeds are everywhere. They crowd out valuable agricultural crops, compete with the tomatoes and beans in your vegetable garden, spread rampantly along roadsides, and pop up from the tiniest cracks in sidewalks. In order to manage them, we must first learn how to identify them.
Weeds of the Pacific Northwest is a guide to identifying, controlling, and eradicating over 300 species of weeds that gardeners and homeowners are likely to encounter in Northern California, Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia. Though they can all cause trouble, each weed is different. The hundreds of user-friendly photographs and detailed descriptions of each species here ensure that you can spot and treat any weed in your path. As the experts behind this book demonstrate, some plants can be killed by eating them, some by digging, some by smothering, and some only by the judicious application of chemical herbicides—and it is very important for you and your neighbors to know and understand the differences.

Review to be posted to my Bookstagram (@booklovingcatmom) closer to release date.
Thank you so very much to Timber Press and NetGalley for granting my wish and allowing me an early peek at Weeds of the Pacific Northwest!
I can honestly say that this book is one I would very much like to have my own physical copy of to reference at my leisure. The information is relevant and concise and the photos are incredibly helpful. I appreciated how there were close up photos of the flowers and the foliage along with the main photo.
I would recommend this book to anyone living in the PNW as I think it is genuinely helpful.
