A shrub or bush is a small to medium-sized woody plant. Usually it is below 6 m in height.[1]

How to map

You can place a node (node) at the location of the shrub with the tag natural=shrub. For scrublands, which feature land covered with shrubs, draw the area and tag it natural=scrub, and then if you want you can map the individual shrubs within the scrubland using natural=shrub.
