Train the dog. Mine broke one by jumping at it because he saw another dog out for a walk, and it bent the screen body. For our back door, we have a bell, and he has to ring it to be let out. That way he doesn't scratch the frame or jump at the screen.
A $40 chainsaw rental from Home Depot would make pretty short work of those trees, too.
Do not know the type of wood that is laying around out there. I have thought about a chainsaw but have never used one.
As for the house since we closed today and the house is empty we dropped off our moving trucks. When we pulled up the front yard had about 5 deer just standing there and staring at us like we were invading their home. When I walked around the wooded area I saw signs of deer tracks and droppings which may add to the "just leave it" route so we do not disrupt the wildlife.
Just leave it.
