This also falls into the don't ask me how I know category. Killed a 15 year old fir tree. Whether poison ivy grafts with trees, I don't know. But I wouldn't risk finding out.
I'll agree with that if there is root grafting.

I have no idea what kind of stores you have around. Co-ops and farm supply might.

This is a good company and they carry about everything, this is for vegetation mgmt.

Re: Poison Ivy on Oak and Pear Tree

Thanks guys.

Here are some pics from this evening.

First two are the pear tree. The vine doesn't seem to have grown back on the pear tree. There does appear to be a lot of it growing around the base.

Pics 3-7 are the oak. The oak either has new vines growing, or I missed them last year. This is a twin (trunk) oak, and the ivy seems to have found a happy place between the trunks. It's also growing around the base.

Last two are the area near the (non-poison) Sumac bushes/trees. Not sure if any of the stuff under the Sumac is poison ivy.

No kidding.

Most of my yard is clear of it (as far as I can tell).

The Sumacs (and growth under them) aren't on my property, which ends at the utility boxes. But, that stuff runs along the sidewalk, so we (including wife, kids and dog) all walk by there.

Neither the former owner of that property nor the current one have ever done anything with that stretch (probably 80-100 feet long). I usually cut it back with the tractor when I mow. Not just for the poison ivy, but all sorts of brush gets overgrown and either blocks the sidewalk, or you scrape against it while walking. I don't think I've seen either set of owners walk in this direction.

I'm sure that I spread all kinds of stuff from that area into my lawn with the mower too.

I don't want to spray the area and kill the Sumacs. Of course, with my luck, everything but the poison ivy would die...

Pear trees are ONE of the trees really sensitive to herbicides. I've seen a weak herbicide do a slow kill to large mature pear and plum trees 3-5 years after very minimal application of a herbicide was used not very close to the base of the tree where other trees and bushes would thrive, so be extra careful around your Pear tree.
I've seen weed killers kill Pear and Plum trees. (slow kill, trees start dying 3 years or so later)

Re: Poison Ivy on Oak and Pear Tree

My pear tree is in rough shape, as is an apple tree. I'm wondering if the lawn chemicals (used up to about 2-3 years ago) got to them.

My "orchard" of fruit trees was planted by the PO, in the front yard, right in the middle of the lawn...

Looks like I see some bittersweet vine under your pear tree as well. Not poisonous, but it may become a bigger problem than the PI the way it spreads.

These look really cool, full grown with the vibrant red coloring in the fall. I don't want them in the lawn, of course.

Re: Poison Ivy on Oak and Pear Tree

If I had my way I'd make a chain link fence surrounding my property and let poison ivy grow only on the fence,and some thorn bushes like roses behind the fence...that would discourage any trespassers ,at least after their first offense...

Re: Poison Ivy on Oak and Pear Tree

^^ My 'fences' are old rusty woven wire topped with old rusty barbed wire with a variety of stuff growing in, through and along them. Included, but not limited to, Privet hedges, Honeysuckle, Forsythia, Cedar, Locust (thorny), Blackberry vines (thorny), Quince (thorny), a few other thorny and/or thickly tangled vines and bushes and a healthy (or unhealthy) intermingling of Poison Ivy.

You really don't want to try and get through all of that.

This was a term mainly for liar politicians who would not commit one way or the other, BUT having poison ivy on the fence would result in a new meaning.

Poison Ivy in the fence adds new meaning to the term, "He who straddle fence end up with sore crotch"

Could not happen to a nicer bunch of politicians.
