    Description

    An estimated 160,000 acres support huckleberries in Oregon and Washington, but this area is dwindling as trees and shrubs invade the berry fields. Effective vegetation-control methods and huckleberry management techniques have not been developed. However, such techniques are available for the closely related eastern blueberries, and it may be possible to modify these methods for northwestern conditions. Descriptions and an identification key of the 12 northwestern Vaccinium species are given, as well as a literature review.
