I am currently removing all of the brush and small trees from my yard. I have poison ivy through out my yard and still see the vines growing up some trees.

My concern is that it's winter and, beside the vines, I can't tell what part of the ground and brush is poison ivy because there are no leaves. There is so much that I need to burn, but am afraid that there may be poison ivy mixed in with the brush I've collected.

My question is, how can I be safe while I'm burning? Could I simply wear a surgical / Painter's mask? Is there a way to tell which "Brush" is actual Poison Ivy?
