map the trees as such ( maybe starting with a way but in a further
progressing map we could arrive even at a point where every single tree is
mapped with a node, allowing for entering more details (like perimeter of
the trunk or species for every tree in mixed occurences). It might be more
difficult to check the db for avenues that way (as you would have to check
for proximity) but this could be overcome by a relation (guess this is what
my preposters suggested for lane-groups).
