Bittersweet, Poison Ivy & Virginia Creeper Removal in Kingston, NY

Autumn is the perfect time to save your trees from winter’s snow and ice, which can weigh down the branches and break them off.

PI Patrol was called in for an invasive species removal project in Kingston, NY. The health of these beautiful old pine trees were being steadily degraded by Bittersweet, Poison Ivy and Virginia Creeper climbing up the trees.

Here's the tree line after removal of all invasive species.

For years, these pine trees were constantly thirsting for more water because the invasives were soaking up the rain before it could reach the deeper tree roots. As they got higher, the vines began to steal the sunlight from its leaves. Over time the trees began to structurally weaken with the weight. It all added up to the invasives flourishing and the trees suffering.

 The roots were dug up. They won’t be coming back any time soon. You can see the damage the vines were doing to the tree bark.

We pulled everything off the trees and dug up the roots, much more effective than spraying chemicals. All debris we remove goes right to a tarp and then hauled away so that the yard is not contaminated.

Debris is always collected on tarps.

Go outside and take a close look at the tress on your property. Do you notice their branches sagging? Are vines creeping up them? Is the ground covered with plants that are crowding out the deeper tree roots?
