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.

So what is distinct difference between natural=trees and landcover=trees? --EinKonstanzer (talk) 10:14, 12 September 2017 (UTC)

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=*:

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)
