There is a method in permaculture (more widely used in Australia) called chop and drop. Depends on whether you like a neat landscape. I mulch with shredded leaves so I can get away with it. Smiling I don't chop and drop roses, tomatoes or forsythia though.
Only when the last tree has died and the last river has been poisoned and the last fish has been caught will we realize that we can't eat money. Cree proverb
