Otherwise, trying to remove it while it's still alive is VERY difficult, if not impossible. If you want if off your trees, it's worth a try!

I just did this with several trees in my yard about 2 months ago and it worked like a chram. While ivy doesn't kill trees, it does prevent the tree from making bark and it also weakens branches/limbs. After having several fairly large tree banches fall in my yard, I was afraid I was one thunderstorm away from one landing on my house and causing some serious damage. Ivy can be useful as a ground cover plant, espically in areas that don't get a lot of sunlight...but you HAVE to prune/trim it to keep it in check!
