The primary problem with allowing a vine to grow up into a tree is that it can shade out the tree foliage and block sunlight access for the tree foliage, preventing photosynthesis of sugars to keep the branch and tree alive, and cause die-back of the branch and foliar crown.
Growing on the trunk is one thing, but allowing it up and into the foliage is another.
