Question: 125-5201
I have vines growing all over my Mountain Laurel and the trees at the edge of my garden. Is there something that can do to get rid of them? Al, Waterford, CT

Mort's Answer:
You can tag them now so that they will be easy to locate in the winter. At that time you should be able to more easily remove them. Digging up the roots is the only effective way to stop the spread. Vines that are dormant in the winter do not offer the resistance that they will at other times. They will not harm the trees and the vines will cover the laurel but they will not kill them.
