Good afternoon,
I am located in Abington, Pennsylvania (North Northeast of Philadelphia) (GPS Coordinates: 40.122315, -75.106038) and I have a vine which grows all over the trees in my yard and is starting to choke out the pachysandra in a few of my beds. Last year I spent two or three days cutting it down and attempting to pull the roots up, but this year it is back even worse than last year at this time. I am wondering if somebody could tell me what this is and perhaps the best approach from ridding my yard of it (lots of spots it is mixed with poison ivy so I am not sure there is a "great option") It does not "cling" like some of the vines that we have climbing our trees. But instead seems to wrap around things and finds every crack to sneak into.

Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
William

I believe this is the very invasive Celastrus orbiculatus...Oriental bittersweet.
