- Wear gloves when you're removing vines.
- Pull or dig up the vines.
- Use an herbicide as a last resort, and wear protective clothing and eye protection.
how do you kill vines without killing trees? To remove and kill vines, follow a few basic guidelines: Use sharp pruners to cut the vine off the tree, leaving about 6 inches of the stem in the ground to deal with later. Gently pull the vine to see if it has attached itself to the tree. If not, pull the vine off the tree using your hands or a rake.
Similarly, it is asked, how do you permanently kill a vine?
You can kill vines by cutting them down and removing their root systems, or by smothering them with mulch. Vinegar and boiling water are also good, non-toxic options for getting rid of vines. For stubborn, persistent vines, use a systemic herbicide to attack the roots and destroy them for good!
