I have been doing a lot of reading on PI lately because of an outbreak I've suffered. Apparently, just because the PI plant is dead, it soes not mean you can't be afflicted by the toxic poison urushiol. Be especially wary of the vine and stems. Urushiol has been found to still be active even after the PI plant has been dead for several years. Do not burn it.
