The mean three: Poison Ivy, Poison Oak and Poison Sumac are not only a hazard to your landscape but also to your health. Trying to remove Poison Ivy from buildings, fence lines, etc. have landed many people in an itchy hell for weeks or in some cases the doctors office. In the past, many companies have turned to harmful weed killers to deal with their Ivy problems and found minimal success.
Being a part of the landscape industry for over 15 years, I have found that the most successful way of handling invasive vines, such as Poison Ivy, Poison Oak, Poison Sumac, Stinging Nettle, Virginia Creeper, Knotwood Kudzu and Bamboo is the old fashioned way, pull it and dig it out.
Weed Killer strong enough to kill your Poison Ivy is often times not “selective” meaning, If you have a shrub or tree you want to keep alive that has a vine growing through it you don’t want to dowse it with weed killer. For Poison Ivy, Oak and Sumac removal we choose the “organic” route, hand pulling the offensive vines from your landscape, walls, building, fence line and dig out the roots wherever possible.
Our removal specialists at Advancaed Land Management are trained to identify invasive or poisonous vines and are well equipped with proper tools and safety equipment to remove your poison ivy, etc. quickly and responsibly.
Once your Poison Ivy problem has been solved we offer a maintenance program to ensure the problem never arises again by monitoring the property 4 times during the season so if an undesirable vine shows itself it is handled before it becomes a more costly project to remove.
