How to Remove Ivy Plants

    • 1). Cut the ivy off at your eye level while standing. Sever every woody vine within your reach with the pruners. If the ivy is just beginning to grow, skip to Step 4.

    • 2). Cut the ivy vines at the base of the tree, fence or wall. Get as close to the ground with the ivy as you can and cut it off. Use the saw or pruners for this job.

    • 3). Pull the ivy away from the upper and lower cuts with care to avoid damaging the bark or mortar. The ivy in the upper portions of the tree or building is cut off from the roots and will die and fall off.

    • 4). Pull the ivy out of the ground by the roots. Keep pulling the ivy from the ground until you remove it completely from your garden. Pulling ivy out is the only way to remove it all from your yard; using herbicides won't destroy ivy, since they don't affect the roots.
