A found a guide somewhere that said 300 was a good maximum number of 
members for a multipolygon.
The northern Blue Mountains tree relation was over 600 and climbing. I 
thought that was a bit high and might need attention, particularly as I 
was adding more members.
I split it into 4 IIRC .. and go them all under 200 members each.

I have not looked as yet at the other large tree relations that I have 
in the past edited. In the 'to do list'.
