the group relation requires at least 2 objects:

It may not be absolutely typical natural language to speak of a group of two, but proposing also a pair relation seemed overkill ;-) and a group of three is fine.

You would not need to specify whether it is a group of trees, lakes or islands, because it should be implicit through the members, but of course you could add tags like natural=archipelago if it makes sense to you.
