Poison Ivy Near Tree
I was wondering if poison ivy growing near a tree can pass its agents into the tree's sap? I would like to cut the tree and build a bow out if it.

The sap itself should be fine. However, you may want to use gloves and other protective clothing when working around or cutting the tree as a precaution. If the plant has directly come into contact with the tree, then the oils from the poison ivy could be passed on to you when touching it.
