You need some of all of it - the twiggy stuff from the climbers and shrubs is 'good brown' and the veg peelings etc is green and you need that too. I would get another compost bin - I only have a small garden but can never have too much compost - mulching, digging into veg patch, potting etc ..... like gold dust In fact if you have too much, how far away from us are you ....... can you deliver.?
We gather the tree leaves each year and store them in black bin bags with holes in and the leaves start to break down. Then in the summer when we're adding lots of 'green' to the compost bins in the form of lawn mowings, we layer it with a bag of partially rotted leaves which are 'good browns' and keep the proportions of the mixture right. Makes brilliant compost.
