so i took the little dump truck and loader from work...and yes, this little thing pushed over every single one of those trees, i figured i would do that instead of cutting them and trying to dig the stumps out

Great job.

Apparently it wasn't a problem for you, but for anyone else reading this--Don't burn poison ivy.

I made a campfire out of poison ivy one late night in Big Sur, California with a buddy of mine.........we both woke up covered with only (and I mean only) the palms of our hands and the soles of our feet un-infected. Spent several days in the hospital for that little extravaganza. Yea, burning poison oak or poison ivy is not a good thing.........

It's funny, in my area we have a tree called poisonwood that is protected for environmental reasons. One of the biggest around is in my yard, and I trim it with care. A neighbor was hacking away at one in their fence and got really infected with blisters. Another neighbor burned some dry branches, including poisonwood and almost died. Around here the hurricanes take down the trees for you, and I burn the wood when it's dry. Only difference is that I burn it in the generator, no smoke no problem.

Gammon, you should be careful. A neighbor of mine nearly died years ago from breating in the vaporized oil.

I had a bad case of poison ivy for about 5 weeks and just ended about 4 weeks ago. It sucked,but if anyone gets it, try putting hot water on it in the shower, it feels amazing (it doesnt help cure the posion ivy though).

Anyway, my question is that, I heard you cango blind from poison oak, is this true? and how do you identify poison oak.
