|My neighbour has just reduced a fifty foot high maple to a 4 foot trunk. My view has been completely ruined but she is confident it will grow again... Is she being over-optimistic?

It will grow again but will forever look like a Maple tree having a bad hair day. Its time to explore some fast growing alternatives.
