Default Honeysuckle question

There is some honeysuckle growing down the road from me that has been there for at least 25 years.
I'm wondering what type it might be and if it would be ok to transplant some. I stopped and looked at it today and the deer are really browsing it hard.
I geuss i'm thinking that it is native and would be ok to put some on my place but i sure dont know anything about the stuff.

Is it a vine?

I'd be real cautious about transplanting some. I'd guess it to be Japanese Honeysuckle. Yep deer browse it, but I wouldn't plant it my my place. Probably not native. Again, I'm just guessing though.

Ya it's a vine type. I dont know why i couldn't remember that it was probably Japanese Honeysuckle. I'm having the state forester out so i suppose i could run it by him and see what he has to say. It has been in this one spot for as long as i can remember and hasn't spread too much it appears. I havn't seen it anywhere else close to us at all.

I'd sure want to identify it as native before I transplanted it into my place. Getting invasives back under control after they've spread can me a nightmare.

Here are some pics of the Japanese Honeysuckle. The leaves are not as rounded as on the native one. If it is the native one you have, I would like some seeds.

i was going to ask the difference. i guess i've got native. sure are pretty when the berries are on them. the birds have been hitting them hard. i guess it's time to keep an eye out for the black berried ones.

I've never seen the native honeysuckle. I'm not really sure how common it is.

Or maybe I just stink at ID'ing it.
