Some how I did not notice this dead ash on my property until today, it's about 10 or 12 inch diameter As you can see in the pictures it has some poison ivy vines , which I assume are not dead. Once I get her down, I think I can strip the bark off with an axe or hatchet and burn it just fine. What I am concerned about is going at it with a saw, and having the chips from the poison ivy vines flying around . Oh yes, I get poison ivy at least once or twice a year, the area where this tree is, I avoid , because there's a lot of Ivy , I have managed to kill off some of it. I have never cut down a tree with vines on it like this though , so ! any suggestions how to deal with it. EDIT: The good thing is ,it's ten feet from the end, of my dead end street, and leaning toward the street, plenty of room to drop it, on the street n clean it up.
