Bus Stop Nightmare

bus stop poison ivy

A viewer sent in this memorable photo of a tree covered with poison ivy – at a bus stop. 

This is the sort of climbing poison ivy vine that sends branches way out sideways to gather more sunlight. These huge side branches look so much like tree branches that they fool people, with sad results.

Any person walking on the sidewalk here may brush against the hanging poison ivy branches and the next day find out their summer is ruined.

The property owner and/or the local government should take care of this mess! (This is somewhere in the city of Pittsburgh.)
