Removing plants from driftwood?

So I have a piece of driftwood in the tank and Iíve tried covering it with java moss and Christmas moss but my Betta fish is still messing up his fins on it! I think he squeezes himself under it because his top fins are so damaged. Iím thinking of removing it, Iíll just have to sacrifice some of the moss thatís glued to it. I also have Anubis and java fern glued to it, is there a way I can remove these plants that are super glued on without hurting them?

Just make sure that the majority of the roots are still intact.
