Trees Saved from Choking Hazard: Campaign Blasts Off

Our trees add value to our properties and quality to our lives. That is why we’ve invested so much time and money into landscaping, nurturing and maintaining our trees and gardens. The investment is worth it. Unfortunately, what looks like a lovely little green plant can actually strangle those trees, and cause mature trees to fall down during storms. English ivy is a treat to that investment. Thankfully, it is a beatable one.

Sixty volunteers are now trained and ready to teach others how to beat English ivy and save the trees. They are equipped with education materials to share with homeowners,  have slide presentations to give at civic associations, and materials for exhibit booths at farmers markets and festivals.  You can learn what they know by clicking on the tab above “Take Ivy Off Trees”.

You will find details on the 3 Simple Steps to save your own trees from ivy. You can also join the campaign by requesting a speaker for your group or a volunteer to demonstrate to others how to remove the ivy by emailing

Join us in making all trees safe from the choking hazard of English ivy! We encourage you to download and adapt the flyer, slide presentation, photos, etc. in whatever way is best to save the trees in your community.
