We have it all over our property growing up trees. Vines have aerial roots. Just doesn't looks like Ivy to me. Thanks

Did it start out with lighter leaves like in this photo? and then it eventually all turned dark green?

Yeah Im pretty sure it is Winter Creeper after doing some more research. We have a ton of it growing up a lot of trees on our property.

It's winter creeper and it gives me the willies to even think about it. I thought I had written a treatise on it but I don't see it in the comments. This is one nasty vine. If you clip it or pull it to rid yourself of it, be sure to get every single root. I didn't know that and ended up with giant shrubs taking over. Took me forever to get rid of the shrubs. And then it took me forever to get rid of all of the roots. I'm still a little paranoid that I might see it return.

Found my pictures. They're in the Plants Database listed as:
Purple Wintercreeper Euonymus (Euonymus fortunei 'Coloratus')
The pictures show how it grew into shrubs and also the nasty roots.
