Cedar bark poisoned oak/ivy


Over the weekend, we have spread some Cedar bark and I think it may have poison oak or ivy contains. I like Cedar bark than multi tree bark because we do have carpenter ant in back yards and it will help control the area.

But if bark is contaminated with poison ivy or oak, can you touch them as we do gardening or what should we do?

We have only finished 1/3 of bark spread and need to purchase additional bark for back yards.

What is best way or how to buy bark that no poison ivy or oak in them?

As I spread bark, I did see few of ivy like leaves. But they were very fresh and I didn't think it was from bark because bark takes long time to produce and if there was poison ivy or oak leaves, it should have turned brown, but it was fresh green leave.

Cedar bark poisoned oak/ivy


If it is poison ivy or poison oak--and still green---My guess would be the plant was growing up the outside of the pile of chips---it's not to likely that you will get more in the next load---Just be careful when working around that batch--
