Neighbout obtructing to non intrusive tree

Our new neighbor has raised concerns that leaves from our mango/coconut tree are falling into his compound. There is also the periodic issue - once in 2 months of coconuts harvest. In question is 3 coconut trees and one mango tree. There is no risk of material loss for the area affected is open ground in a 12 cent enclosure.

He wants the trees cut, and we are a bit emotional about it, given the fact that in cities live ours if we enforce such silliness in chopping trees, its going to be barren concrete only! Given then situation what is the legal options available for us to protect the trees?

If we apply the same yardstick to other neighbors, we shall go ahead and cut 12 coconut trees, 3 mango trees, close to a dozen banana plants and 2 jack fruit trees. Resulting in no trees any more in our house hold which would mean raw barren house in a once green household.
