There is some kind of vine growing in my arbeviteas and it is killing them. They are now going from tree to tree. What can be done to get ride of the vines. Some are as thick as what Tarzan swung from!

It sounds like Kudzu vine and if so, it extremely difficult to control. I'd take a sample of the leaves to your local cooperative extension office for positive identification and to learn the latest control measures. Contact Maryland Cooperative Extension - Harford County Office, 2335 Rock Spring Road Forest Hill, MD 21050 phone (410) 638-3255.
