Does this tag make sense?
landuse=forest can mean a lot. But natural=trees means there are trees growing. It's not defined what kind of trees or if it's probably a plant nursery. natural=trees is different to natural=scrub and different to natural=wood.
- Yes it makes sense. Have a look at the proposal page which explains that in more detail. --Polarbear w (talk) 10:47, 12 September 2017 (UTC)
Do not use landcover=trees, use natural=wood
The established way to tag "landcover" features like vegetation is with the key natural=*:
- dwarf shrubs, healthland - natural=heath
- Shrubs, bushes, scrubland - natural=scrub
- Trees - natural=wood
- water - natural=water
- ice - natural=glacier
etc. - natural=* These are supported by editors and database users, and are much more commonly used. Most of the uses of landcover=trees are in Paraguay from a particular organized mapping effort. There is no need use this tag or the key landcover. --Jeisenbe (talk) 05:19, 13 August 2019 (UTC)
