Notes:

Leaves of three, can it be…..? It is a saw toothed vine that looks like a Virginia Creeper but has three leaves, not the usual five.

    Maybe these are juvenile form of Japanese creeper/Boston ivy (Parthenocissus tricuspidata). To my eyes these details from the plant i.e. the vine doesn’t look hairy as of those from poison ivy. These leaves have a quilted appearance, also with those single leaf on the vine look similar to those of Boston ivy. Check out these included links for Boston leaflets & more information for its juvenile form. Since I only have your photos to observe, take caution anyway when you are handling the plant.
