Can't think of a tree but what about bushes Jasmine , Honeysuckle and herbs curry plant , lanvendar , rosemary come to mind 

however doubt if that would be enough depends on the smell 

could you put a couple of pictures up so we could see the problem ?

A few random questions :)

Loz , your original query was in July , only just seen this site , I assume a lot has happened since then

Are you growing on an allottment or at home ?

Hope things grew well in Aug/Sep/Oct and you could still have loads growing now and planting garlic and winter onoins 

To cut everything down, or leave.

Yes everybody to there own , that is the beauty of gardening would never tell somebody what to do and would not expect to be told . 

Personally I like my garden to to be tidyish and I get loads of different birds , hedgehog ( called him Harold ) and he likes meally worms that I put down for ground feeding birds , squirrel , voles and god known what else

Some dead plants do look nice with a bit of frost , slowly putting the garden to bed for the winter , happy gardening / allottmenteering
