Don't look like poisen ivy to me, taste it, and tell us what it tastes like. Seriously leaves are to serrated on the edges, looks more like grapevine sprout.

It's not Gensing. Three leaf spread. I'd say don't touch it without gloves untill you know for sure if it's poison oak or not.

ETA, does it have a woody stalk near the ground or is it soft and pulpy like grass?

It might be poison ivy. I wouldn't know from personal experience since I don't react to it. I could dance naked in that shit for hours and not feel a single itch.

Rub the leaves on your balls. Let us know what happens.

I have a friend like that. Although repeat exposure finally caught up with him.

I get a very severe reaction, that's why I'm trying to rid my property of it. All the Poison Ivy pictures on the web look different to me.

While that's your experience up 'til now, don't get too cocky.
No one is immune. It's only a matter of when you will be sensitized
to the oils; not if. If you're exposed enough times, you will have a reaction.

Incidently, the oil, which is the source of the rash, is never dormant; winter, summer,
woody, green, leaf, or stem...the family of poison oak, ivy,sumac is ready when you are.
You can contract it from secondary exposure as well; from petting your dog, from burning
brush, from weedeating wherethe plant(s) grow.

Gotta love a plant that has so many ways to do one in.

+1 for poison ivy. Just remember "leaves of three let it be"
and whatever you do don't burn it, The oils that cause the problems become atomized and can get cover you and get it your lungs.

Rip it out, haul it off, and make a temporary pond of Round-Up. I am not affected by it, but my sister has been through hell because of it, and I know someone who burned it and wanted to die after.

That is unquestionably poison ivy.

Whatever it is, Agent Orange should take care of it.

Sumac or Poison Ivy. I thought Ivy had narrower leaves. Maybe it's Pot I'm thinking of. No wonder I can't recall which.

Leaflet 3, let it be.

It's poison ivy.

Poison sumac has berries FYI.

Wash immediately after contact. There are cleansers which can help.

If you burn this stuff dried in brush, stay upwind.
