Tall vine harvesting notes

pulling honeysuckle vines from top of tall tree

The trick to pulling honeysuckle vines from tall trees is pressure.

Pull too quick and the leaves can strip off.

A slow and steady pace seems to yield the best results.

Everyone thinks kudzu is bad, but I think honeysuckle is worse. I don't pull them off the trees, but clip them off at the roots. Then they die. Right now wild blackberry brambles are also on my crap list as they spread so fast and now they're in my neighbors yard beyond the fence and leaning over and I cannot tell you how many nicks, scrapes and gouges I have on my arms from trying to keep them cut back and taking over my property. Unfortunately the "neighbor" is Bank of America and you can't get them to do anything.
