please give a link, I couldn't find a key "tree". There is the key "trees",
which I guess is what you are writing about.

according to the wiki it is about the "trees and plants _in an orchard_",
not about "plants" in general

see 1)

-1, the key is well introduced, if you want to fiddle with this, please
make a new proposal, but it doesn't seem semantically better to me using a
tree species as orchard subclass, while you could better (like it is
already done) add a tree species indication to a key named "trees".
