No. And it sounds like a contractor or the municipality warned her that the tree would suffer irreparable harm from the project. Are you in some deed-restricted community that would make her even think to ask it this way?
Would you allow her to take down the tree if she paid for its removal?
Something to consider--with a tree gone and an in-ground pool in an adjacent yard, rainwater absorption might go to shit.
I want the tree. It shades my yard nicely in the summer. I told her she can trim the branches all she wants on her side of the fence. I saw the tree guys in her yard a few days ago. I'm betting they told her the cost to trim the branches back on a tree this size and she came up with this scheme.
