Will a Virginia creeper injure a 50-60 year old sycamore tree?

Not right away, it won't. Virginia creeper is one of those plants that does little harm if kept in check, but if left to its own, it can kill a tree that large over the course of several years. You just need to make sure you are routinely removing it from the tree to keep it from doing that.
