I'd suggest that the friend add a second guy anchor point, INSIDE
the existing guy anchor point, and transfer the existing lower guy wire
to the new anchor point. This makes virtually impossible a scenario in
which a tower falls the full length of its height. Do some thought
experiments to see if you can come up with a scenario in which the tower
falls the full length of its height in the direction of the complaining
neighbor, and I'll bet you have to envision multiple simultaneous
failures, a prospect far less likely than getting hit by a car on the way
to buy milk and bread.
It may well be that no amount of arguing will satisfy the
neighbor like a second set of guys.
