Chimney Climber

chimney poison ivy

Here is another great example of the relelenless climbing ability that poison can muster.

This is a location in the Philadelphia area, just this last few weeks in late April.

Umar Mycka, one of the great poison ivy wizards, sent this image over. His poison ivy removal work is centered in the Philadelphia area, so contact him if your chimney looks as scary as this.

He and his team removed this vine which weighed over 30 pounds.

Note just how far out from the chimney the branches of the ivy vine stick out: they are gathering more sun to make more urushiol oil in order to ruin your summer!
