The Ivy

Don't worry about English ivy choking anything - it doesn't. In fact we have a lot around here (central England) on old individual oak trees that is protecting  them from getting their bark scorched in the sun. It gives them a much longer  life. If you look at an established wood - you'll see that the eves of the  wood are completely green and the trunks of the trees are only bare inside  the wood. Bark can get sunburn, just like humans! Isolated trees grow a wide  canopy to protect themselves, and very often allow ivy to grow up the trunk to protect them.
