This feature has been labeled as deprecated. The recommended replacement is: natural=tree_group.
The reason is documented in Deprecated features. You are still free to continue to use or interpret this tag as you see fit since OpenStreetMap does not have “banned features”.
Under no circumstances should you (semi-)automatically change “deprecated” tags to something else in the database on a large scale without conforming to the automated edits code of conduct. Any such change will be reverted.

All uses of this tag were removed in early 2015 by a mechanical edit. Marked "non-special trees", notably those closer than 50 meters. Introduced by a mass edit during an editing dispute. this tag was deprecated then purged in 2015 from the database (see Automated_edits/Bryce_C_Nesbitt#DONE_-_fixme.3Dset.E2.90.A3better.E2.90.A3denotation_and_denotation.3Dcluster).
