[Tagging] knotted willows

Considering that there are several management styles for individual trees,
we could have something like

tree:managament=pollard

Other values might be none (allowed to grow free), copicce (pruned almost
to the ground), espalier (pruned into a flat vertical surface), etc.

tree:management:operator=* could then be used to indicate who is keeping
the tree pruned.

Maybe tree:pruning_style would be more logical?
