Poison Ivy, Eastern Poison Ivy
Toxicodendron radicans

Here is an example of a mature plant...they climb way up the trees and drop seeds. I have seen vines 4 and 5 inches in diameter.

Susan, I have never seen a poison ivy vine with a diameter that large.

We have them here like that, although I don't see many over about 3" in diameter.

There was one about 2" in diameter in a dying cedar tree here when we bought this house in a cold January. I cut into it with a chain saw that year, before it leafed out. I've NEVER had such a bad case of poison ivy... the chain saw splattered sap everywhere!

Here is another photo of the same vine, nearer to the ground. I remember it was huge, I think it was nearly 5 inches in diameter. For ticks, chiggers, mosquitoes, flies, and poison ivy, come to beautiful Missouri!

This is one plant that has never survived living on my property. I water them with Round-Up.
