Probably not, but C. montana is incredibly vigorous and given a few
years could well cover the tree. Fruit production will suffer. There is
a also very low chance that the additional weight and area of the
clematis could result in a tree with a weakened root system blowing over
in a storm.
If you have concerns wait until January or February, then dig up the
clematis and move it to a better place.
