Wisteria Vine - A Pretty Bully


 
Most vines in trees just don't mix. Like English ivy, the Asian wisterias
(Chinese and Japanese) were primarily planted in yards and are deadly
to trees. Not only do the vines that grow 65 feet long block sunlight from
tree leaves, the mature stems become woody and as wide as 15 inches in
diameter, they climb by tightly wrapping around and girdling the tree.
There is a wisteria native to North America that is far less aggressive and
more manageable. The process to eradicate unwanted wisteria is similar to
English ivy. See the link below for information.
