Is there any easy way, using guerilla, to remove the paper-thin trees that are on the cliffs of Timberland?

I tried deleting the shader environments trees_filler and treeclump_filler in the sbsp tag but the map wouldn't compile after that. I also tried making a small 32x32 bitmap to replace the tree bitmaps but it just got stretched out to fit the surface.

Quickest and easiest I can think of would be to replace the shader's bump map .bitmap with one that as no alpha. It's how I think people early on have been able to get rid of the warthog's turret without erasing the geometry or whatever.

Setting both tree_filler and treeclump_filler's bump with levels\a10\bitmaps\cryo glass.bitmap seems to do the job well enough.
