Hello,
Great site and Thanks in advance for any help.

I have a hill covered by white pines in my back yard, under a 1/4 acre. I started pulling up what I thought would grow into stickers, but alas they are poison ivy as my forearms are somewhat covered. Anyhow, this hill is covered with long pine needles that have formed a kind of mulch. The vines if you will were very long 20' some of them and criss crossing all over the hill. I pulled up a lot. But I am wondering, shoudl I go out there and just start pulling up all vines under this mulch? I did get a lot but by no means all of it.

What would be the best way to remove as much as possible in this situation? There really aren't many leaves right now but very many vines still left. Should I rip them up or wait until more leaves come in and use brush b gone?

Thanks,
John
