If that is the case, I don't see the purpose of this tag.  If it's a case
of one or
the other then it serves a purpose: you can avoid tediously adding the tree
and instead add the tree-lined property to save time.  It seems pointless
redundant to permit both, and is likely to lead to data inconsistencies over
time: trees get removed so the way tagged as a tree row is removed but
the mapper doesn't notice the tree-lined property on the object.

I'm also doubtful about the utility of the tag anyway.  How close do the
have to be for an object to be tree-lined?  Exactly on the periphery/?
a metre?  Two metres?  Ten metres?  A kilometre?  What if the trees line
three of four sides?  Or there are sizable gaps for the entrances?
