New Invaders of the Northwest (Jun 2010; PDF | 14 MB)
USDA. FS. Forest Health Technology Enterprise Team. FHTET-2009-04.
The purpose of this guide is to help land users recognize new invasive plants early on, before they become large and expensive problems. This hands-on field guide focuses on 62 newly invasive species not yet widely distributed throughout the Northwest. Each species is highlighted with multiple photos and descriptions emphasizing key identification traits, typical habitat, current distribution, and ways to distinguish it from look-alike species. The guide includes weed hotline numbers for those states with such programs in place, so that new infestations can be reported and treated immediately.
Note: Print copy may be available from FHTET, contact Lisa Cress at email@example.com (1 copy per request).
