    Have pine near house. Have cut large Ivey vines on trunk. Tree guy says pine Shaw needle drop. Needles are thinnner that other pines close by. Any thing I can do to make the tree healthier?

    Looks like a fairly run of the mill ivy vine to me. Given half a chance most of them will climb anything they can get a bit of a grip on.

    Appears to me to be English Ivy. Grew out of control at my Mom’s house and very difficult to get rid of. Ruins brickwork…

    That is English Ivy Ð an invasive species in Georgia (http://www.ecosystemgardening.com/english-ivy-most-hated-plants.html). It can kill trees, and the weight of the vines can make a tree less able to withstand ice, wind, etc. in storms. My recommendation is to carefully cut through the vines all around the base of the tree, being careful not to hurt the tree. The other thing that is bad about letting ivy climb up trees (from what I understand) is that it stays in its juvenile for when it is creeping along the ground, but becomes adult when it climbs. Then it can reproduce Ð and that’s when you start getting ivy seedlings popping up everywhere. I had to to this to all the trees on my half-acre lot when I bought my house a few years back. I am still ripping it up all over all the time. A lot of people love the look of it, and maintain their ivy instead of a lawn without letting it take over, but it takes work. Whatever you decide to do, good luck with it!
