Why not just let nature take its course?
That would work except for the fact that we have introduced non-native invasive plants that overtake our native plants and alter the natural re-growth of our native plants. Our City will not be the same place in the future if we do not get the invasive plants under control. Native ground cover and habitat will be overrun by ivy and we will have ivy deserts.

Our mature trees will gradually disappear with no new young trees to replace them because ivy suppresses the sprouting of seedlings!
