TPO Compensation

Hi All.
Can you help out with this scenario please.
Mrs 'Smith' has a protected tree in her rear garden that is clearly pushing 
over her listed boundary brick wall.
Having received quotes, it's going to cost £5,000 to demolish and re-build 
the wall with the tree in situ (i.e using special / bridging foundations). 
Or, it's going to cost £3,000 to demolish and re-build the wall with 
traditional foundations (if the tree can be removed).
If an application to remove the protected tree (supported by a report and 
copies of the quotes etc) is refused, is the Council liable to pay 
compensation for the difference between the two?
Or am I simplifying the matter too much?
Cheers
 Trevor Heaps
