Invasive vine ID

I have no idea what this is. It's invading my neighborhood. Neighbor is blaming the other neighbor from bagged mulch. I'm not getting in the middle of it. Lol

Any help is very much appreciated.

Could be. ^^^

I was wondering the same thing. I've seen it for years around here, but not like this year - it's taking over!

I guess the temps and regular rainfall are "just right" for vines this year because everywhere I look the vines are spreading like mad.

If it has a white or pink flower i would say that it is hedge bindweed.

Yeah it does a white flower. I googled hedge bindweed and that's the vine. Only way to kill it, is to kill everything else. Awesome.

Thank you everyone for the input.

It is an annual that has really gotten going since the drought last year... We call it "Creeping Jenny" and it can easily get very tall in the trees in just one season...

Where is it growing?

There are ways to control it. Not necessarily eradicate, but at least keep it manageable.
