Tree over hangs my front garden shedding seedlings

The branches are rather large and over hang my front garden, the photos were taken in the beginning of April so the tree shed the seeds about February/ March. This makes many hours of work as each one gently needs to be picked out carefully so you get all the roots out. It is very hard work especially as I am 58 and have some back and hip trouble. Can you let me know how best to resolve this problem. I know there are cut backs but I was told the trees used to be cut every 2 years and I have now lived in this house for 2.5 years now. The location of the tree is to the right if you have your back to Cranbrook Close.
