If a tree trimming accident causes damages to the neighbor's roof, am I also responsible for a change in resale value to his home?

Question Details:

A tree trimmer cut down a rotten tree on our property. He told us he was insured and bonded. He was not. A branch from the tree damaged the neighbor's roof. The tree trimmer is not likely to be able to pay any damages. We have offered to pay for the roof damage. BUT the neighbor is trying to sell his home and says we should compensate him for lost resale value. Are we on the hook for loss in resale value?
