    That's not a fun one  You can get rid of whatever is on your property by digging it out by the roots. That should keep it away.

    There is no such thing as a poison oak tree. You mean poison oak and poison Ivy. I am highly allergic also. I spay it to kill it back or you can dig it up but it appears in many well kept gardens. So hoe it , dig it or spray it a few times each summer to keep it back.

    Do you know what it looks like ? It's a plant that grows like a vine. YOUR neighbor didn't plant poison oak or Ivy.. it grows wild . NO one would plant it.

    It may not be the plant you think it is, post a picture for identification.

  • I do not know anyone not allergic to poison oak, ivy or sumac. I would kill what is on your side with vinegar, if it is indeed a poisonous variety. Have you talked to your neighbor? They may not even be aware that it is there.

    Hello, you can treat the stuff that is peeking over the property line with this mixture. Dissolve one cup salt in a gallon of water and add a tablespoon of dish soap to create a solution that can be sprayed on poison ivy. While this method of killing poison ivy is effective in the short run, it will probably require future treatments to keep the ivy at bay. Larger plants may require roots to be dug out, soak it first then dig. Don't throw the weed in the garbage burn it or send it offsite
