We have to consider that solar panels will become even more.
Martha's Vineyard property owners and their tree contractor cut down ten mature trees on a neighbor's property to improve their own view of the ocean. The court upheld a jury award granting the wronged property owner the 30, replacement cost of the trees, rather than damages measured by the worth of the timber or diminution of the property's value. The solar system actually saves up a lot of energy.
I know this is a gardening forum, but look at that map. Treanor planted all those trees far from their own house, and all the trees are right next to their neighborer's solar system.
Those trees are 20 and 40 feet tall.
Their neighbor asked them to trim the trees, and they say NO. See these articles on Neighbors and Trees for advice on handling tree disputes with neighbors. The book Neighbor Law, by Attorneys Emily Doskow and Lina Guillen, provides extensive advice on tree-related law and liability issues involving invading branches, damage from an unsound tree, boundary trees, and more, including how mediation or small.
Labeling anyone who has an interest in the environment as a bunch of nanny-state children is absolutely ridiculous.
This is a lovely, established neighborhood and fitting to have mature trees. Remove all ivy from trees. Keep all the mature trees except the split one at the corner of the property. That might be a good place to plant an ornamental understory tree to enjoy. All your shrubbery is mature.
