Does anyone have a good way to kill the vines/brush/wees off without damaging the trees? This area will eventually be grass and perhaps some garden in the future but I assume I'll that will happen next year after the killing process takes place.

For the vines, cut them off 5 or 4-inches above ground level and paint them with Triclopyr. It can be found in products like Bonide Vine & Stump Killer (See ) and other products. I get mine in a commercial product by the gallon (see ) which is like 61% active and, when diluted as per label directions, will kill most weeds, trees, etc. as it is used by the highway dept., utility companies, etc. to clear the right of way. It works well on old poison ivy vines.
