Can honey suckle vines hurt trees?

I know that you have to be careful about English Ivy climbing and doing damage. I have some honey suckle growing (wild, we didn't plant it) up a pine tree mixed in with some other plants. Is this a problem? We like the way it looks. Thanks.

If it is Japanese honeysuckle, white and yellow flowers, smells real good, grows real fast,
It will definately eat the tree up.
My friend lost a gigantic boxwood to japanese honeysuckle and it is starting to ear her hydrangeas, I don't know why she won't kill it, but she won't.
So, which one do you like better?

I just transplanted mine from the base of a live oak tree to a utility pole.
