LandUSE

The tag is for the primary USE of the land ... if it is primarily for nature conservation .. then it should be tagged that way - not as an orchard nor meadow. Warin61 (talk) 21:49, 24 February 2017 (UTC)

"Primarily for nature conservation" may or may not be the case. I personally know at least two: #1 has just "always been there" behind the pastor's house, probably belongs to the church as an institution. #2 is a section of a former meadow that was turned into a residential zone. This section has a little stream going through it, so they could not build houses there. Turning it into a proper park was either too expensive or deemed inappropriate for a little village like this, so they planted some trees and called it a romantic Streuobstwiese. Thing is: you probably won't see any difference between either of these two or one that is still there because of actual conservation efforts. I don't think that'S something we could map. --El Grafo (talk) 08:12, 22 August 2018 (UTC)

Orchard vs meadow

The tag landuse=orchard does not distinguish between the method of tree planting nor what exists between the trees. The tag landuse=meadow implies that there are no trees so, to me, is less suitable. Warin61 (talk) 21:49, 24 February 2017 (UTC)
