We have been removing some ivy from a house here, and have gotten almost everything away from the structure. What is left is a main stalk which runs up a corner of the chimney, about 2" in diameter. My question is what is the best way to get rid of this without damaging the house? I wanted to know if I should use some sort of chemical to help kill it over the winter, or just start destroying it carefully, maybe with some sort of dremel, piece by piece? I'd appreciate any thoughts on this, as this ivy holds on tough! Thanks in advance as always!
