Removing Ivy Off Of Trees...hints?
I have posted a message about removing ivy off of the ground, but now, I have a bigger issue...the trees. I have ivy growing up several maples, cottonwood, and other trees in my "woodland". I cut the stems of the ivy the summer before last thinking that this would begin to kill the ivy, but alas it is still thriving. We have lost two trees due to the ivy (a cherry tree and another I am not sure of) pulling them down. What else can I do to get rid of this ivy? Could I spray Crossbow on the ivy or would this hurt the tree? The ivy vines are an inch thick in some areas! Ideas?
