How to identify Poison Ivy:

A lot of people ask us about poison ivy and how to identify it on their property. Here’s how:

Look for the vine with clusters of 3 leaves with pointy tips.

The center leaf almost always has a small stem whereas the 2 side leaflets grow directly from the vine and don’t have small stems.

The leaflets can appear in a variety of shades of green but they tend to be a darker, waxy green on top. The underside of the leaves typically looks lighter in color and fuzzier.

The berries are typically a greenish-white or white color.

When in doubt remember, “Leaves of three? Let them be!”
