Removal of Ivy
Ivy is an evergreen plant. Removal of ivy from the base of the tree and its trunk enables the tree to breathe better. Apart from trees, ivy is seen growing on bricks and on the ground. If you do not want it in your garden you should remove it as soon as it is discovered to keep it under control. Once the growth of ivy has initiated it becomes more difficult to inhibit it.
Ivy can be quite hazardous for a tree, but this is not always the case. When dwelling on the tree, its roots will cling to the branches, preventing the tree branches from receiving an adequate amount of sunlight, water, and oxygen. Thus interfering in the proper growth of the trees. The weight that it puts on the branches has the chance to damage the tree. But you have to bear in mind that in the UK most ivy types are native and therefore the trees can survive with them. If you have an invasive specie, which happens a lot in the US, trees are not able to stand the ivy on them.
