Wild grape vine
The woods surrounding my house are all strung together with what I believe are wild grape vines (along with honeysuckle). These woody vines are 2-3.5 inches in diameter. They look like a roller coaster running up and down in the woods and then up to the canopy.
I don't know if these are considered invasive or not but they have created a hazard. When one tree falls, it takes another 5 with it but they don't fall all the way to the ground. They just hang there, taunting us everytime we enter the woods. I have sawed through many at the vine base in an effort to get the vines to die and therefore eventually lose there strength so the trees can break free and make it all the way down to the ground.
My question: are these the caracteristics of wild grape and if so do I put this on my list of invasives to tackle or just worry about the big ones that are creating hanging tree hazards? Thanks, Leigh
