My neighbour has reduced a 50 foot high maple tree to a stump - she assures me it will regenerate. Can anyone tell me what will really happen?

Have a look at this:
://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pollarding

Some people hack off the top of trees (for whatever reason); the maple tree may never again look like a proper maple tree...or the tree may just decide to die... but if the tree belongs to the neighbor...oh, well. Sighing!

Didn't we have this conversation a couple weeks ago?
