This tagging sounds reasonable to me, the only thing I wanted to add
was that when you are tagging orchards there are other trees that are
planted in orchards in straight rows in this area (for example rubber
tree plantations/orchards). The way you can identify that the trees
are palm trees is by zooming in in the high-res imagery and looking at
the trees themselves. Palms will have a spikey "star" shape when seen
from above that other kinds of trees do not have. If you are not sure
about the species, just tag it as an orchard and omit the species tag.
