Twelve Trees of Brazos Bend State Park

Poison Ivy

Toxicodendron rydbergii

Poison Ivy can be found on many trees in Brazos Bend State Park as well as along trail sides.

The need to stay on trails is necessary to aviod exposure to poison ivy!!

Notice the "hairy" vines climing the tree on the right. They are poison ivy. They may look dead, but can cause a severe rash when touched.
