 Around here there are roads several miles long lined with trees.  I've
mapped them unless there was a compelling reason, but adding this attribute
to the road doesn't really help.  There will be hundreds of metres that are
tree-lined, then anywhere from 10 to hundreds of metres of ordinary hedge,
then more trees.  It can be trees on both sides, or one side, or
I hope you get the idea.  I don't think I've seen any stretch of road which
is continuously lined with trees along its entire length.  To use this
attribute I'd have to put many splits in the way.

I wouldn't use this attribute on anything around here.  I wouldn't recommend
that anybody else use it.  In fact, I'd recommend they don't.
