Fairly sure the wall is a brick 'n a half - 13-1/2", can't see it's at any great risk from the felling process.

I'll update once i get this sorted and drop some pictures of the finished results - thanks for talking it through with me, difficult to be objective when it's your neighbours and I DO want to be reasonable about this with them, more so because of the lack of any relationship.

Take your photos and remove the trees . The wall is not that bad and should stay up providing nothing is dropped on it and the tree is removed carefully.


What happens in a few years time is not your concern unless you own the wall.

One thing I might do if felling those trees is lift any coping stones that are really loose and lay them on the ground against the wall - they'll be safe there.
