The worse place I have it at the edge of the woods.Can't really get rid of it,but can keep it from spreading.It can grow close to the ground,in the open,or in the woods it can be 2 feet tall.I have never seen it as a vine on my land.

The edge of the woods is also the worst place that I have it around my place, but it readily grows up into the trees, and develops a thick stem that attaches to the trunk.  When I get it I usually have to get an oral steroid prescribed in order to get rid of it.

If you drink goats milk that has fed on P I It will boost your immunity to the stuff...

Of course, if you're drinking goats milk you're pretty tough already, so it might not matter much... :D

THECFARM, we could be talking about different plants.  There's poison ivy, which is a vine, but can also grow as a small single-stem shrub 2-3 feet tall.  Both forms occur in my neck of the woods.  Then there is poison oak, which is a tree, and poison sumac, which is also a tree.  All give the same allergic reaction to an individual.  Whatever reaction somebody has to one plant will be the same reaction he/she has to the other two also.

Phorester, we don't seem to have the vine type up here. My friend lived down your way for a few years and he pointed the vine type out to me. I thought he was pointing to virginia creeper, he said go ahead and grab onto it. I didn't try, wasn't brave enough.  ::)
Move'n on.

One winter day I was out with a landowner who didn't recgonize poison ivy vines.  They are very furry in appearance.  He began stroking one like he was rubbing a cat.  He said, what's this. I said, poison ivy.  He jumped like he'd been shot, then began stroking it again saying, oh well, I'm deathly allerigic to poison ivy, thank goodness you can't get it in winter.  I said, yes you can, just by touching the vine like you're doing.  He jumped back again.

I don't know if he ever got a rash from that episode, but I didn't shake hands with him when I left either

 When we bought the house we're living in now there was an out building 100 feet behind the house that was cover in vines. We moved in in Jan. and you couldn't even open the doors it was so covered. Most of them were wild grapes(still had some dried up ones on the vine) What I didn't realized was at least 1/2 of them were poison ivy. I had only seen it as low ground bush(which is still a vine if you pull it up you'll find that out) . Any way I got back to it in the spring and was ripping off the vines and my son comes back to tell me he has a school project(2nd grade) to make a May Basket, I set him up with a piece of wood that we drilled holes around the diameter. We tapped some kabob skewers into the holes with a little Elmer's and he started weaving a basket out of the vines. When I got home Monday from work he couldn't wait to tell me how much everyone loved his basket since the majority of the baskets were made of construction paper his really stood out. Matter of fact the principal of the school liked his so much my son gave it to him. Two days later I broke out in the rash from head to toe. I figured out what it was and my wife called the school....... a little to late the principle had it also, but my son never got it.
