What is the best to trim overgrowth of ivy out of a crepe myrtle tree, but just a few of the vines? I can use a ladder and get to trim the vine hanging in the area I want to trim out of the tree. What would be the best to use, a pole trimmer for trimming limbs or a hedge trimming to trim a bunch at one time?

You just have to send pictures. My vote would be pole pruners not hedge trimmers or anything powerful unless you are an expert with their use. Crepe Myrtle is not a huge tree, pole pruners might be fine for higher up stuff but hand pruners might be best overall.
