i have what is believed to be parasitic grape vines growing all over the hillside alongside my house. i have severed many of the branches to help save the trees but am not able to obtain enough footing to dig out their massive roots to remove them. is there any other way i can get these things to stop growing all through my trees?

You may have good luck if you cut off the the vines just at ground level and then immediately paint the stubs with Round Up or Brush B Gon. Don't give up! You'll eventually kill them off!
