Notes:

Grows at an alarming rate. Is choking out kudzu. Takes down mature trees. has thorns–some are small and soft, others are large and woody. can grow 10-12 feet straight up til it hits a tree limb or other plant. Was killing off almost 10 acres of trees on my land. reacts to light from a flashlight–glows like neon. Will also follow the beam of a flashlight (kinda scary)

    Dig it up, cut it down, poison it with vinegar…it will be the vine that ate Alabama otherwise!
