I am the owner of this property and the tracks are being portrayed by All Trails and other apps as rights of way. We have had damage done to our crops, instances with dangerous cattle and walkers in fields with no footpath and visitors not paying to enter

OpenStreetMap is a map of the world as it exists, not as you might like it to. What you probably want ed to do was to ensure that the access tags on paths etc. were correct. Why you chose to delete woodland etc. I have no idea. I'll restore them and then review the access tags on paths etc.
Andy, this is not woodland - it is a private collection of trees and botanical garden. As the owner of this site I reserve the right to ensure that it is not been represented. Please do not restore paths or woodland features. Thank you
I'm trying to help you here. Simply deleting everything again whilst I'm trying to set access tags etc. in line with your presumed wishes is extremely unhelpful.
"Just deleting everything" will not work - people will simply remap what they can see from aerial imagery (without access tags).
I’ve now changed everything that was deleted in https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/105985206 to access=private .
However, I don't know that I haven't mistagged any (as yet untagged in OSM) PRoWs, so access tags may need revision in line with that.
Also "private" may not be the correct access tags for all ways; "customers" may be better in some cases - please discuss.
