I spent some of today putting a fence tarp up on the chain link fence that separates my home from a schoolyard. This vine brushed my face. I sure hope it’s not poisonous!

    Looks like harmless Virginia Creeper, which I love. I know you are worried about it being Poison Ivy which it isn't. An easy way to tell them apart Poison Ivy has 3 leaves, Virginia Creeper has 5.

    My vote is on Virginia Creeper, so you are in the clear unless you are allergic to it.

    That looks like Virginia Creeper. If it is the main stock closer to the ground over time will look almost like a thick rope. It's very invasive and it has killed some of our trees by literaly chocking the life out of them. You can try pulling it by hand but it will be a never ending job. And as of yet I still haven't found a spray that will kill it without killing everything around it as well.
    GOOD LUCK!
    P.S. Nurserys and garden centres actually sell this plant. I don't know why becaue I woud give it away free if anyone wants to come and get it.

    This is Parthenocissus Quinquefolia, A.k.a. virginia creeper, which is harmless, but a bit invasive. Still you can keep it in your garden if you trim it regularly. I have my fences covered with it, and I am very happy about it because it's easy to trim and grown fast. You can cut it anytime and it won't suffer, but you will only drive her growth.
