Status: de facto

This is a tag for a tree stump - remains of a cut down or broken tree.

Some are present-long term. But even relatively short-term ones may be useful to show that a tree which might still be visible in aerial imagery, is not there any more. Some tree stumps may also have been intentionally left, e.g. to provide seating or in memory of a tree.

  • natural=tree
  • obstacle=fallen_tree - most used tag for fallen trees, consistent with the obstacle key definition
  • barrier=fallen_tree - low usage tag (400 as of Jan 2022) describing a fallen tree, somehow inconsistent because the key barrier is mostly describing objects put on purpose
  • barrier=log - tree trunk or major branch as a barrier
  • barrier=tree_trunk - very rare tag (16 as of Jan 2022)
  • natural=fallen_tree (note that it is used very rarely, fallen trees if at all are mapped as obstacles or barriers, but there are some notable fallen trees)
