If you don't have a garage option but want to park under trees for the shade (or can't avoid the trees in your area) a car cover works pretty good. Covers can be a hassle -- you have to put them on and take them off, they get wet and heavy when it rains, they get stolen, the sun rots them -- but they do keep the leaves off.

I sometimes park outside under a Pin Oak (an East Coast tree, another undocumented alien) for a few hours rather than bring a hot car into the cool garage; it's surprising how much accumulates in just that short time.
