I've seen posion oak in the Cascades in Oregon. I think I was
standing in it when someone pointed it out. I just talked with
a former Seattle resident. He said posion oak does exist but
it's some what rare. It tends to grow in the drier areas up
there; places it doesn't get choked out by the black berries.
When I was a Scout, we talked about posion oak, but the only
ones we saw as posoin ivy and posion sumack. I used
non-posionous sumack as part of edible plants, so the
difference was important.
