I have suffered a severe case of poisoning with the resulting rash and itching. Have received medical treatment. Thanks.
Problem is that I am severely alergic to the poison. Therefore
I attempt to avoid contact at all costs. This time I was asked to trim a tree outside of work. Because of the time of year there were little or no leaves. The vine was attacked to an old tree (probably cherry)with new tree limbs growing around the old tree. The vine had a growth on it that appeared to be like a brown fuzz with spikes up to approx. 2 inches. Having never met this type before, I did the obvious and am now suffering. Can anyone identify this plant. PS. It range between 1/2 inch to 4 inches thick.
