    I only say it doesnt seem like poison ivy because it has wooden branches coming off the main branch and there is no oil on the leaves like poison ivy has.

    That is Poison Sumac,

    Its just as bad as Poison Oak, and Poison Ivy. I study the pictures of this stuff a few times a year because if I get it, I have to seek medical help not just a cream either.

    That makes more sense but i didnt think we had that in iowa? If it is poisonous why have i never gotten a rash from touching it?

    Sumac has opposing leaves Ivy are in leaves of 3.

    Not that I am starting a poison ivy vs sumac war.

    Just don’t touch it.

    This is not poison sumac. It’s poison ivy as previously stated.

    I guess what is throwing me off is i have never seen a woody branch come off the main vine on poison ivy. Plus the fact nothing happens when i have touched it. I know it can climb trees. So any other ideas?

    nah we dont need to battle. Sumac and Ivy are kinda simaler, problem is ivy and sumac they have different looks Yes we have Sumac in iowa. Either way they are both equally bad I just stay away from both.

    Leaves of three leave it be.

    This is a good sight to reference has alot of pictures of alot of different types of Ivy sumac, and oak. a good reference.
