I agree that imports are always distorting the tagging system, and pose a
general threat to our bottom up system of community generated tagging, and
"voting by using stuff".
Regarding landcover=trees overlapping the road: this is not a problem or an
error, it means the trees are covering these parts. I agree there is a
grammatical error (should be "tree" ;-) ), and I agree natural=tree would
probably be a nicer representation for this particular case.
