Anyone know of an insurance precedent!?...

I'm currently trying to fight an insurance claim:

I work for a local authority and we recently pruned some trees that had been 
cited in an insurance claim. We have since found out that the trees were on 
private land and we are trying to avoid being involved. The insurance company 
is saying that, I quote:

"Given that the Council's contractors did undertake work to the trees, this 
would show that the Council exercised ownership and/or control. Accordingly, 
we consider that the Council are the appropraie defendents in this matter."

Can anyone help me out with this one?
