Use this section to submit new trees and berry shrubs

trees=hop plants

Suggested by User:VonLausitzOelpen]] on the Proposed features/orchard. See Wikipedia:hops FrViPofm 14:48, 30 October 2009 (UTC)

  • I like this proposal. FrViPofm 14:48, 30 October 2009 (UTC)
should that be 'hop_plants'? but should _plants should appear in a tree sub catagory?

I like having _trees plural as it might prevent duplicate spellings, e.g. trees=apple trees=apples --Loshu 07:58, 20 November 2009 (UTC)

Cleanup of tree list

There was a mix up of common names of fruits like 'apple' and the plural 'apples'. Also of the denotation of the type of plant: tree, and plural trees, palm/palms

Last but not least the list contains palm plants (coconut palm), shrub (blackberry, blueberry, ...)

Most common before clean up was fruit + plant type. Therefor the standard should be as this example: apple_trees (fruit + plural of plant type).

This is my pow on this matter... --EinKonstanzer (talk) 00:41, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

Next cleanup - without translations

The existing list with several implemented translations is a bit confusing. There exist already a list in French and Portugues and Japanese within landuse=orchard. I propose to eliminate the translations in the english list. The translations could be done in separate language pages, as it is common usage in the wiki.

Any objections? --Rudolf (talk) 13:06, 15 July 2014 (UTC)

Done. Created also two language-pages in German and French. The old list can be found at Key:trees/list for historical reference. --Rudolf (talk) 06:56, 22 July 2014 (UTC)

Missing values

In landuse=orchard are mentioned several tree-types which are missing in the tree-list. These are:

Already used values, missing in tree-list:

New proposal

I propose to add these values to the list. --Rudolf (talk) 05:48, 17 July 2014 (UTC)

Orchard has a distinct meaning, related to fruit trees grown for their fruit. It can be extended to some non tree shrubby crops, including cane fruit (raspberries, et.c.), but should not be used for non food production. Rubber trees, oil palms, cork oak et.c. should be excluded, if only because most English speakers will tend not to use this tag. I suggest that these crops be placed under 'landuse = plantation'.

Proposal: Sambucus

elder is the common name of Sambucus. It is a very common plant and many people search for it to produce e.g. sirups.
