The following initial landcover values are proposed. These are currently the most used values (value inspiration ). As for landcover=trees, it is recommend to, as currently is done, double tag it with landuse=forest or natural=wood until that discussion is resolved.
|landcover=trees||For areas covered with trees||-|
|landcover=grass||For areas covered with grass||Use landuse=meadow for grass fields with an agricultural function or natural=grassland for natural grasslands|
