Poison Ivy Tree Monster

poison ivy treetop

Poison ivy climbs a dead tree, looking for light. When it reaches the top, it spreads out in all directions, a sort of poison ivy explosion, looking for more light and for the next thing to climb upon.

This tree at the edge of a parking lot is a typical poison ivy tree monster. What gets people into trouble is when they mistake the poison ivy branches for tree branches.

So look closely to see what is the actual tree foliage and what is really a vine climbing up.
