Note: To use herbicides, for example on the cut stumps of invasive non-native vines, a commercial applicator must have a certified pesticide applicator license.

Tree rescues will be a new undertaking for most companies. They may need help to learn the proper techniques - Blue Ridge Prism is a great resource for that - and to recognize which vines are invasive and which should be spared because they are native. See this page for online learning resources in English and Spanish. Hands-on vine ID workshops are held periodically in some parks. We also have volunteers who can meet them on commercial properties to show them the ropes.

Winter is an excellent time for control of invasive trees, shrubs, and vines. Landscaping companies have more time for extra projects then.
