The key protected=* has been used to specify the duration or extent of legal protection for an area or feature.

This tag was first used in Massachusetts, USA, from a MassGIS import of features also tagged with natural=*, leisure=*, or landuse=*. The most common value is protected=perpetuity, but protected=limited is common and protected=temporary was imported for 100 features.

The value protected=yes was also used 18k times with features tagged natural=tree in Europe.
