Hi,

I have a tree that has fruit that looks like blackberries. I looked up images of mulberries (because I was told that blackberries don't grow on trees) but the leaves look different. These are smooth, not serrated. Any ideas?

Also this same tree has ivy all over it. How do I get rid of the ivy? Do I need an arborist to help me with this, or is it something I can do on my own?

Karen

I suggest you check on the internet and make sure it is NOT poison ivy before you touch it.

start by cutting the ivy/vines at the bottom of the tree (all of them) and then start pulling off from the bottom; after a few vines, you'll get the hang of it and will see they pull off quite easily. Then you can start to pull out the ivy around the tree...
It'll take time and will hardly be a permanent solution, but it's a way to keep it in check without using chemicals, etc.
It's what I do whenever/wherever it's called for

Why don't you post some photos.
Photos of the leaves, bark and fruit will help. And while you're at it, pics of the ivy too.
