    Do you mean Ivy?

    I was going to say I thought ivory had been banned in the UK image

    How large is the area in which you want to rid the ivy?

    Personally I would consider keeping it as its great for wildlife, I'm lead to believe that moths love it? But if you really must get rid of it then cut it at its base and leave the ivy a couple of months or more to naturally die. It will then be easier to pull away from any wall/tree that its growing against. 

    Ivy gets a bad name as people think it damages walls, but often the reality is that it only does damage when people yank it off the wall whilst its still alive.
