Notes:

I live in a very swampy area of the Bear River in Northern Utah. This vine started showing up about 10 or 15 years ago. It has pointy leaves a lot like a maple tree leaf. It flowers small white flowers around June and at the end of summer its berries turn red. If you touch the plant it gives off a stench. It has killed off many poplar trees and overtaken fences.

    Compare to pepper vine. It is grown in some of the Northeastern states but Northern Utah would seem to out of its comfort zone. http://www.bio.utexas.edu/courses/bio406d/images/pics/vit/ampelopsis_arborea.htm and http://plants.usda.gov/java/profile?symbol=amar5

    Except for the stench part, it’s consistent with wild grapes, like muscadines or scupernogs. Try one after they turn red this fall
