Every time we clean our back yard someone breaks out in the rash. We have attempted to kill it back with weed killer. There is a small tree with a base of about two to three inches in diameter with leaves that look just like those of the ivy on the ground. My question is does the stuff grow into a tree if left to grow over a long period of time. My husband says no way and I say the leave look the same. The tree is about eight to twelve feet tall and weeps over. The only thing that is not in character is there are more than just the three leaves. There are the three on the end of each limb that look like that of the ground cover then two more back up the limb. Someone enlighten me on weather this is possible.
