I have this plant that is growing all over. Is it a parasite that I need to remove? This plant is creeping up trees and it is growing through and over all my other plants.

I am pretty sure this is Chalice vine(Solandra species). It is not a parasite, but it does grow fast and can shade out other plants. Prune it back as much as you wish - it can tolerate heavy pruning.
