identify climbing vine
Attached is a photo of the flowers of a vine that climbs our trees. The vine portion can be quite thick - 1 to 4" sometimes. Can you identify this plant and let us know if it is doing harm to the trees it's climbing? Will it choke out the tree(s)?

I’m sorry, your picture came out blurry on my computer. Could you try again, and spread out flat any leaf that has started to unfold? For a flower, take a picture from the side, and from the front so I can count how many petals it has.
From what I can see this could be wild grape.
Any vine that climbs and shades the tree will not be good for the tree. Thank you.
One other thing- please use gloves when handling, if you don’t know whether it is poison ivy.
