Maintaining your yard takes a lot of work, and when you start to see non-native plants take over, it can be disheartening. These non-native plants were brought into our area of Oregon from areas of Asia and can alter your soil as well as kill off your existing lawn and landscape plants. It also takes away the key nutrients needed for your plants and grass to grow.

English ivy is actually a plant that originated in central Asia and after it was introduced to the area by immigrants, it quickly became invasive and took over areas of our state. It can rapidly crowd out other plants around it, including trees. We also have problems with Atlantic ivy here, which is quite similar to English ivy.
As ivy grows, it forms a thick tangle of vines and wraps around surrounding shrubs and trees. This, in turn, blocks light from getting to those plants. Ivy also destroys the deeper root systems of existing plants and creates a shallow root system, which can increase the risk of soil erosion.
Ivy can also overtake trees which weakens them and can cause limbs and branches to break off. The leaves and berries can also be toxic to humans if eaten. Our team performs ivy removal to get rid of this invasive plant in the Portland, OR area.
