Even if you can’t identify the leaves of three you should let be, you know poison ivy can be a real pain, but did you know they can get you in trouble with the local law?
Patch is taking a closer look at the rules and regulations in Upper Moreland Township and found this code about weeds.
Property owners are not allowed to “Allow poison ivy, poison oak or honeysuckle to grow in trees,” according to the Upper Moreland Township code. The only exclusion to this rule is farmland.
If a Health Officer gives a property owner notice that he or she has not followed this code, the owner has 10 days to fix the problem, and then he or she can be charged for the removal of the objectionable vegetation and fined $100-$1,000 for each offense.
