Blackberries grow plentifully in our young Pacific Northwest forests. There are native and invasive strains of blackberries, all providing a nutritious fruit treasured by larger animals like bears and deer; smaller animals like rabbits and squirrels; and many species of birds. Blackberry seeds are spread far and wide through bird droppings and animal scat. They’re so prolific, some strains are actually considered a weed in Washington and Oregon.
