No, you would need to implement a LoggerRepository and Hierarchy to do
that on your own, which I doubt is worth the amount of work. From the

So in your example Logger "aaa" or "bbb" don't know anything about
their children, so you can't free them currently because you don't
know if they have children or not. Additionally, loggers are often
used statically, so they have no useful scope to release them. You use
