Please excuse me if someone has already mentioned this but I think that
the quote that you have given is probably making direct reference to a
particular case (the reference escapes me but I will check it out when
next in the office) where a successful claim was made against a council
where by managing a tree over a number of years they had assumed
responsibility for it.

Hi,

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?

Thanks...

Trevor
