The wall is mine, the piers are on the neighbours side. I rebuilt it exactly as it was before.

I'm sorry, but a half-brick wall is just not substantial enough for that location. The piers should be on your side of the wall. Bridging with lintels or reinforcement in the area of the roots should have been used.
