Invasive/ noxious vine species

We are removing the invasive tree vines that are located on the right-hand side as you leave the front gate.

Vines are woody or herbaceous twining or climbing plants with relatively long stems. Invasive means that they are native of another area but as a result of human activities, have adapted so well outside their known natural ranges that they are invading and harming South Florida's native habitat. Their removal to protect hammock, pineland or shore areas has become imperative to keep them at bay. Their mere weight on the canopy of a tree or shrub can become a factor causing breakage. Moreover, the density of the vines may inhibit photosynthesis, thereby starving the plant below.
