Green roofs and overhanging trees.

What ho.
Just had a query from a client along the lines of what do I know about
green roofs? Apparently they've been told to rake the fallen leaves off
twice a year.
I have absolutely no knowledge of this topic so was wondering if anybody
else had. Especially as green roofs are becoming more common and even a
requirement on some developments.
I think in this case there's potential for an argument about a street tree,
and of course it's in the heart of Sheffield's protest area, but it seems
there might be another potential clash between trees and a planning policy.
I'd be interested to hear of anyone's experience.
Thanks as ever,
