Proposal

The intention of this tag would be to properly map these areas where plant nurseries exist. A plant nursery grows plants, much like a farmer would grow food. Plant (as opposed to human) nurseries are a common market garden feature of the English landscape, and I assume other nations as well. The proposal is pretty simple... show the name label, and possibly shade them or render a little plant icon.

Note, this tag is not intended for:

  • Trees that are grown food food production, as a tag for it exists: landuse=orchard.
  • Greenhouses, it is strictly meant for growing plants in open land, not inside a greenhouse, for these purposes landuse=greenhouse_horticulture is used.
  • Vineyards, where grapes are grown for a variety of purposes, including the production of wine: landuse=vineyard.

Rationale

The concept of a tree nursery is difficult to map by means of the current tagging possibilities for these reasons:

  • The tags landuse=forest or natural=wood cannot be used, as they are intended for effective forests. If you look in the landscape, the difference between forest and tree nursery's is very clear.
  • The tag landuse=orchard cannot be used, as it is limited to food production.
  • The tag landuse=farm can be used, but conceptually it doesn't feel right as it is not used for food production (crops) or holding animals.
  • The tag shop=garden_centre is too specific to be used, i.e. it represents that shop that sells the plants themself, while this tag is intended for the area where they grow the plants that are later on sold in the garden centres.

Due the appearance in the landscape, the feature of a tree nursery is distinctive enough to have its own tag for mapping purposes.

Examples

Examples of areas where there are quite a few plantnursery's:

In general in the complete world there are numerous tree nursery's, at various locations.

Tagging

The tree plant would belong to the landuse=* group, as it describes how an area of land is used.

Opinions after vote

  • I oppose this proposal I oppose this proposal. - in my opinion it is a bad idea to introduce yet another landuse. In this case landuse=farmland, farmland=plant_nursery would be preferable (landuse=forest. forest=tree_nursery for tree nurseries). Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 08:53, 7 October 2014 (UTC)
