This is a legal situation involving ownership issues. I can’t offer a legal opinion on the issue. You should contact an attorney for an interpretation of local laws.
If you don’t own the land the trees are on, then you probably don’t have any right to do anything to them. The county permit doesn’t cover ownership issues, only that pruning is acceptable under the Protection Act. You will probably need to get permission from the owners-the association that owns them. I suggest you contact them to discuss the issue. Talk to the arborist who will do the work for you and explain to the association what will be done. They may give you permission.
You should also see if there are any local ordinances that allow you to maintain your view. Again, talk to a lawyer.
