Unknown Green Vine on Fence

Asked September 1, 2019, 9:50 AM EDT

This plant or vine is growing on our fence. We are planning to clear away the vines and plants to make raised garden beds. Is the plant harmful to people or pets?

This looks like morning glory. You could let it flower and take a look at the flower to see if you want to keep it. They can be a nuisance spreading by seed, but are also a source of nectar.
