I would assume that as long as you can say that you
haven't undertaken
long term management of the trees in question i.e. you did
this as a one
off, you can make a case saying we undertook the works for
'whatever
reason' - which does not confer either ownership or
assumed management,
it just means you're being a diligent authority. On the
other hand if
you have been managing the trees for some time there may be
a level of
assumed liability.

Tell them to go to land registry and find the real owners
but advise
your own legal dept of the situation.

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.
