Looks like a wild grape vine to me.

Could be... I thought it was for a while, the aerial roots look like grapes... It's growth is blowing my mind, it has gone from a small little creeper thing that I mowed over once or twice to covering over a big section of fence, crawling up hot wires and trees.

Yeah, it grows like crazy. Got one in our yard that I'm constantly trying to control. The good part...birds enjoy the grapes.

Follow the vines to the base of the plant and cut there. Do as much damage to the roots too if you can.

I hacked it up... They grew on the property years ago, you can still see several 20+ foot vines dangling from the elms. Thanks for the tips and ID.

Are the leaves poisonous? I have a bit that runs around my fence. I was going to chop it but I was afraid that if I cut it once, two more will grow in its place.
