    I have about 80 ft of red tip photinia shrub to remove tomorrow and I just noticed this Vine all over it. I can't seem to get a solid positive ID on it but it sure looks like poison oak to me. It has a bright red stem and a oak like Leaf but the berries are throwing me off. If anybody could help I would greatly appreciate it.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    This appears to be Peppervine (Ampelopsis arborea)

    Welcome Kari!

    One real big benefit of living above the Snow Belt is that we don't have as many poisonous, noxious or thorny plants to deal with.

    There are things that I do miss about living in the South but getting rashes from nasty plantS sure isn't one of them

    What's the matter Tom you don't like the warm fuzzy feeling poison ivy generously bestows?

    It's even worse if you end up spreading the love.
    I had a couple bad cases this year. My wife was not very happy when she managed to get some from either me or my work clothes.

    That is my biggest fear. My son is 17 months and I have no clue what would happen if I brought it home.

    If I know that I have been working in it, I throw my gloves away, soap up and make sure that my dirty clothes are separate from the other laundry. Usually I am able to escape without too much trouble.

    We have similar decontamination procedures here at home, but from time to time some still slips by and the wife winds up with a case. I keep the Technu singles in all of our trucks as well, it seems to help.

    Boot laces could be causing the contaminations, might be oil on your hands after tying them.
