Help!! (name this vine)

InaweinTXOctober 26, 2012

Approximately 3 months ago this eerie vine began choking the life out of its second victim. I trimmed it at the vine to kill what was climbing the limbs, and cut back foliage to find a underground highway of of massive roots up to 2 inches in diameter. I am a beginner but already have a love and fascination for horticulture I want to save the second tree before its too late. Add you see in pictures it strangled trunks and it attaches itself to fencing etc.. And the vines I cut at base, they only looked dead, they began sprouting new leaves.

If anyone knows what this is and how to handle PLEASE ADVISE!!!

Thank you in advance for your time and experience,

I am looking forward to enjoying this sure with you all!

Looks like Virginia Creeper (Parthenocissus quinquefolia).
