Hi, I'm a moderator for this topic. I've been working hard to find a professional to assist you right away, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.
I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you. Thank you!
Im not understanding your answer very well. These trees are long needle in very dense forrest that gets very little sun light to the ground if any. I do not know what a tick ring is. Are you saying that ivy needs more sun to grow? What is glyphosate? and what does it do?
