Do you have any suggestions about removing creeping fig from a palm tree? It is almost stuck to the trunk and I'm unable to just pull it off. I'm afraid it is going to kill me palm.

There is not clear way to remove this vine since you say it is attached firmly to the palm.
Creeping Fig is extremely difficult to remove when it has attached itself.
Your concerns are warranted, this vine may kill the Palm.
I would contact a Palm specialist to determine the best and safest way to remove the vine.
