But does the fact we have removed the tree not remove our obligation

The case law would be interesting.

I was once asked by my Bank manager (who is no longer my bank manager) to 
plant a variegated poplar in his back garden as he did'nt want to see the 

5 years later he and his neighbours threatened to sue me unless I removed
tree and all its roots from his and their gardens as (poplar like) it was 
send up new trees everywhere.

As the new trees were growing consistently with the parent they were
as his property and my fault.  I think that you are liable unless someone 
else has a better idea.
