    This is what we use for the problem of vines suffocating our trees. I used to carry and use a Stihl 029 Chainsaw, but the kickbacks with trying to cut big grapevines is endless.

    The comments on poison ivy are all valid- the chain or spinning trimmer blade and/or lines aerosolize the resins like crazy!

    I have some experience with cutting an pulling down tree vines of all types...wear a hard hat or helmet and watch what you are pulling on...some branches may be rotted where they join the trunk but otherwise solid and when you pull on a vine it comes down on you...some are big enough that a helmet won't help ...just be careful...
