..the effect of ivy comes if the ivy foliage screens the tree leaves. Another issue is weight. Partly the weight of the vines but a bigger issue is how much rain weight adds if the ivy is leafed out

Bill, in your area you may have wisteria. That will choke a tree like a tourniquet and outright kill a tree. Or, you get lucky and it only constricts

As an arborist my mantra is:

Cut vines
Chip vines

Watch out for poison ivy in there too!
