My husband and I bought a home and property (in the US) last Fall, which is being transitioned to permaculture. There was a dead tree on the property in the front yard that had to be removed, which was covered with poison ivy. Now that Spring has arrived the poison ivy is growing back. Unfortunately it is not in an out of the way place, but is in the main part of our yard, close to where we are growing food and where we have a bench. It is also of concern to me for my young grandchildren. I know everything has a purpose, but for the safety of all I feel this needs to be removed.
My question is, does anyone know a successful way to remove it without using any kinds of herbicides or poisons?
