Neighbour has cut back conifer near house
My neighbour has cut back their tall [about 6 metres] conifer which grew some 6 metres from the front of our house (their house is set back a little further). The remaining trunk, plus a few very spindly twiggy branches, is about a couple of metres high, intended, I think, to 'blend in' with a conifer hedge which runs between our properties. They didn't tell me they were going to get this done, but the increase of light to my property is much appreciated!
However, I wondered if the remainder of the tree will now die off and affect the old small wall which runs around the front of my property which produces a raised bed, or will the trunk now produce new pollarded growth (given the close proximity to my house, I am also concerned about heave if the roots die off).
I expect I worry too much
