People usually are more worried about trees overhanging into their yard from the neighbor's or posing a hazard. If trees are removed, I can't think of a negative for you, except it may change the lighting you were receiving, i.e., you may get more sun if their trees were casting shade. However, in a 1-acre lot, that shouldn't be too worrisome.
If you have Bradford pear trees, you might want to remove yours, too. They can reseed and displace the native vegetation. Some cultivars are touted as sterile, but cross pollination with any other cultivar can produce seed. South Carolina will become the second state to ban its sale by nurseries.
