barrier=dead_hedge feels more correct to me than barrier=fence fence_type=dead_hedge

Do we need a new term? Surely a wooden fence is made of dead trees?

It's a fence.

Well, I just learned a term I didn't know. I had assumed you were referring to a regular, planted hedge in which all of the bushes or trees had died. Yes, I suppose we do need a separate tag for a barrier composed of cut branches.

Sorry, I looked up the word on wikipedia https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dead_hedge and thought it was a common phrase for branches that form a barrier. So it is not about a plant that is dead but about a human made barrier mainly made from branches

Wait until spring to see if it is really dead? :-)

How do you map a dead hedge?
As barrier=hedge or barrier=fence with some appropriate fence_type e.g. dead_hedge ?
