Weeds of the Northeast 3.8 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 6 reviews.

This is an excellent plant identification book on "weeds," and at least one can see what pretty flowers, berries and interesting attributes "weeds" can have. May this book have a positive impact on the environmental ecosystem such as by helping "weeds" to be accepted as good plants to have also in the ecosystem. Eventually, maybe these plant identification books would be upgraded to include the weeds' contribution(s) to the ecosystem such as pollinators or visitors to the "weeds"--i.e., Milkweed's importance to the Monarch butterfly, etc.
Another excellent plant field guide is "Wildflowers in the Field and Forest: A Field Guide to the United States" by Steven Clemants and Carol Gracie (Oxford Universiy Press, 2006, Glassberg Publications) that B&N carries.

I love this book. It is thorough, well organized, easy to read, well illustrated and I use it repeatedly throughout the year to help me distinguish between weeds and potentially desirable seedlings in my lawn and garden. The author has selected photos depicting the plants throughout their life span and in a typical setting. Next edition should include garlic mustard! I am a master gardener and I highly recommend it to anyone hoping to take some of the mystery out of lawn and garden management and for any hiker or nature lover who wants to understand more about the 'weeds' in their midst.

If you have weeds that you're trying to identify then this is the book for you. It doesn't tell you how to get rid of them but knowing what they are is half the battle.

This is a very good reference book for the Northeast. It is easy to use and pretty complete.
