Well, I have seen careless drivers park atop small trees in parking lots, but it tends to be hard on the trees, the vehicles, or both.

if the concept is to distinguish between areas where you can park/drive,
and areas where
you can't, the multipolygon thing seems pretty reasonable, comparable to
using it to
represent lakes with islands (places you can swim/boat vs places you can't).

a tree may be in a parking area, but how exactly do you propose to park
on it?
