Does overgrown brush lose it's leaves/greenery?

We need to clear an area for access but I believe it would be much easier when the leaves fall off.

I'm talking about east coast NJ/NY winters.

Will it lose all its leaves? I'm talking about the standard intrusive, overgrown brush. Similar to below...

That far north I think it unlikely to find much in the way of evergreen brush/vines, so probably yes most of the leaves will be gone.

"Brush" is an incredibly broad term. Even in northern areas there are some deciduous brushy species that retain dead leaves for quite a long time, especially if the plant is in a sheltered spot. Lower more protected branches tend to keep their leaves longer. They dry on the twig and stay there until heavier snowfall or wind knocks them loose. I have black alder that carries most of its foliage well into late winter every year.

Although it will depend on the species, most will soon lose their leaves.

Person with a farm here......it doesn't look like it will make much difference whether there are leaves or not.
