Colin,

I worked for a highways authority, and we too pruned a tree on that
turned out to be within private ownership (not uncommon), it what only
discovered to be private when we received an insurance claim for
suspected damage to an adjacent property.  Following a little bit of
digging we realised the tree did not in fact belong to us (Land Registry
etc) so we put this to them and the claim eventually went away. We had
been managing the tree for quite a while too.

Hope this helps a bit.

Just say "we made a mistake." It does happen, and to all of us
especially Insurance Companies, who will no doubt be mistaken in their
attribution of blame  to the trees.
