Notes:

I have these all over my wooded area, and they are climbing my trees. Are they posionous as they have three leaves? Afraid to pull by hand not knowing what they are.

    Confirmed! Definitely poison ivy!

    Word to the wise: DO NOT burn poison ivy as a method of eradication. The oil from the leaves is dispersed in the smoke and you do not want to get poison ivy oil in your eyes or lungs.

    Oh also, even the vines can cause a reaction so no bare-handed pulling, even in the dead of winter.

    Use loppers to cut the vine as close to the ground as you can get. Take a throw away paint brush and coat the cut with round-up. Use latex throw away gloves to do these tasks and don’t touch the cutting blades on the loppers. It takes a year for the oils to quit being active in the vines. Spray the small plants on the ground and wait.
