Pacific Poison Oak, also known as Western Poison Oak, is a North American plant that is found in temperate forests near the coast.

The plant has characteristic three-leaf clusters and can be toxic to humans and animals.

The plant grows in a variety of habitats, including open woodlands, dense forests, and along the edges of marshes.

Pacific Poison Oak is most visible from late winter to early summer, when its leaves are green and new growth is emerging.

In the fall, the leaves turn red, orange, or yellow before they fall off.
