We do a lot of invasive management in the Cove Island Wildlife  
Sanctuary. generally speaking just cutting vines and following up for  
a couple of years to remove any suckers is sufficient. We never  
recommend pulling the vines out of the trees as this usually causes  
more damage to the tree than necessary. Left to its own it will become  
fodder for insects which the birds will enjoy and eventually all fall  
out of the tree.
