How to get rid of LOTS of poison oak?

Asked May 30, 2017, 5:10 PM EDT

We just bought 11 acres in the Alsea area, on a hillside with lots of Doug Fir and poison oak climbing the trees and a lot on the ground. What is the safest/best way to get rid of it?

Thanks for your question about poison oak eradication. Your picture is too far from the plants for me to feel absolutely certain that it is poison oak, so I've attached a photo that compares 3 poisonous plants. However, assuming it is as described, here's a link to a UC Extension article about the plant and methods to manage it, found about halfway through the article.

Hope this is helpful. Good luck!
