you could use man_made=tower and look for a suitable tower:type. There
is observation
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:tower:type=observation but the
definition says "Observation towers such as fire-towers, observation
platforms and tourist attractions. Also see tourism=viewpoint." which
does not really fit for your towers. What about tower:type=watchtower

For the areas I don't know if there is something in use.
