Yes, I think so. It is easy to be certain when you see it so you can see the proportions and size better, but that looks like it. I ahve never seen it diseased like that. The poison ivy that grows like made around us is always very healthy.

Thanks for the quick reply.

Do they spread like weeds? Any way to get rid of them for good without killing the near by trees?

Oh yeah. Follow the main vine to pull out the entire root system.

You can spray them with a mix of vinegar, water and dawn. More can still grow in that location. You are only killing that one plant, not sterilizing the soil. The only permanent solution (semi permanent) is to sterilize the soil, but that kills everything.

Look carefully at the stem. If it's smooth, it's probably PI. If it has thorns (even very small) it's brambles. If it's hairy, it is something else. Some places require you by law to get rid of it. Organic approaches don't work very well, and have their own contaminants. Consider more aggressive approaches with roundup and other additives. Or stock up on potent steroids.

Whatever you do to the plant, keep the photo. It's beautiful.
