To describe the material property of a bollard use material=*.

Known values

Tag Description
bollard=rising An automatic rising (and falling) bollard which controls vehicle access based on a timer, electronic systems, manual controls, or a payment system.

This brief description intentionally doesn't say how rising bollards are controlled, or whether they're generally to be found raised or lowered, but you might like to consider using opening_hours=* or fee=* in conjunction with this tag.

bollard=removable A bollard which can be pulled out of the ground and removed to allow access, often only by the person with the key. Normally in place, and not generally passable.
* Other values are fine too. Consult Taginfo before making new values up.
