Getting rid of Poison Ivy

I am looking for recommendations to get rid of poison ivy without harming a tree in the middle of it. It is a small patch about 6x12 feet.

Josie, thank you for this great advice! I will definitely try it. Love the trash bag idea too.

I’ve had good luck with layering a thick mat of newspapers over it and then covering with 4-5” of mulch. If it is vining up the tree or any thing else you will need to pull it done first. You can do that without touching it by putting your arm inside a double layered trash bag and then pulling it. You can wrap the bag around the ivy to enclose it for disposal.
