How do I get rid of mile a minute on vine?
If you find mile-a-minute or another invasive vine on your property, you can remove it yourself. Wearing garden gloves, pull the root completely out of the ground.

Can my Neighbour grow ivy up my fence?
ANSWER: The ivy will belong to the neighbour as its roots appear to come from the neighbouring property. If the end-terrace wall is structurally sound, then the ivy is unlikely to cause damage as generally ivy roots are not strong enough to penetrate a structurally sound wall.
What kills ivy permanently?
Select a herbicide made with glyphosate, imazapyr, triclopyr, or some combination of these chemicals, all of which target the ivy roots.

What kills vines but not trees?
Apply herbicides to either the foliage of growing vines or to any small stumps of the vines that you may have left in the ground after cutting them off near the tree. You can also use a paintbrush to apply the herbicide to the vine's leaves.
How do you remove vine roots from the ground?
Cut the vines as close to the ground as possible, to avoid spreading the sap by pulling. Dig up the roots. Don't compost any parts of the plants; put them in plastic bags in the trash. If you can't get all of the plants, spray the remaining roots and stems with an herbicide.
