Ivy is a spreading and climbing vine and is a very hardy plant growing in a wide variety of habitats and soils. It readily roots along the stem, growing from discarded cuttings. The berries are attractive to birds, which is the main method for dispersal. It is an aggressive invader, capable of toppling large trees.
Ivy can be physically removed ensuring all parts of the stem are removed and properly disposed of. New plants will readily grow from stem fragments therefore proper disposal is essential.
