The problem here is that the sizable trees indicate this is not near the 
alpine treeline.  The photos do not allow identifying the plants 
growing there but if this is primarily grasses or primarily small woody 
plants natural=grassland/heath would fit.

If this is mostly open, i.e. the trees only play a minor role it could 
be classified as montane grassland and shrubland:


This is however a very broad and anything but clearly defined 
classification so hardly suited for tagging.
