Mandrin honeysuckle?

Well, the tree butchers have been by (electric co) and topped two pine trees. They now look rediculous. However,they still afford some privacy-well, for now anyway. I am thinking of training a honeysuckle up into them, to eventually "replace" them, since the bottoms were pretty dead as it was, and now having been topped, I imagine they will eventually rot from the top down should they get an infection. Will mandrin do well at this? Major wheeler won't get tall enough, although it would be my first choice. I won't plant something invasive like halls, or a trumpet vine, so I'm hoping I can find a well behaved vine to use.

Pipevine is a great climber; would that work?

Really do think Lonicera pericymenum or any of the L. sempervirens varieties would get 15 feet tall, at least.
