These sprout out of a alien looking root ball and grow very fast. They climb, usually straight up, until they grab something. Then, once they get to the canopy, they put out their leaves. Yellow flowers in the spring. They have a thorny stalk. If I remember correctly they keep their leaves during the winter. They’re very difficult to remove from the trees that they have captured.

    The greenbriar with biggest, thickest stem, and nastiest and largest thorns is called Bullbriar. Looks like it, especially in the last two photos.

    Maybe a Smilax, Greenbriar.
