Default wysteria vines and trees

There is so much of the wysteria vine around - it got me wondering if it is
harmful to the trees that it grows on. Does anyone know?

Wisteria is nothing to mess with, IMHO!!!! Although my two were
[presumably] planted deliberately, I believe that a lot of the "tree-size"
Wisteria seen around originally had a "host" (victim} tree for support. By
the time the Wisteria had choked the life out of the host tree, the Wisteria
was strong enough to support itself.

I thought at one point that I had seen the description of the Raulston
Arboretum's efforts to eradicate the Wisteria that was invading its borders
(as opposed to the plantings), but I cannot find it right now.

I've heard it pulls trees and decks over and it should never be planted
unless you have a steel pole to run it up.

Not sure about that, but it will make you pull your hair out trying to
get rid of an established infestation of the stuff. It is very pretty,
but invasive. I prefer to view it from another yard preferably a mile
or three away.
