When English Ivy attacks.
All joking aside, this plant is a major problem in local forests adjacent to urban areas as it does to live trees what it's doing to this dead one. Up, up, up, then down comes the tree. It thrives here and chokes out everything. There are groups that go out and do ivy pulls and broom bashes (pulling up the invasive Scotch Broom) to try to keep these pests in check.
