Poison Ivy (Toxicodendron radicans) Toxicodendron RAD-ih-kanz

Family Anacardiaceae
Why Like Incredibly well-adapted to our woods, Poison Ivy can lurk as small shrub hiding under other plants or a woody vine climbing dozens of feet into the forest canopy (which you can identify by the aeriel rootlets). Spreads underground or as birds drop berries. All parts of this plant are toxic and cause skin allergic reactions in most. Don't burn it!
