+1...Haha! Looks good. Keep the chainsaw handy. Some people's love side of the love/hate relationship with trees does win out. Not many, but some.
You can see and enjoy a 40' tree from 150' away. The only tree that should be used as shade for a pool is one that has been through the mill... I would definitely plan on some type of shade structure even if you do not do it right away. Perhaps you can have a overhang off the new garagemahal with a outside shower and inside bathroom..
