Apparently not.

Interesting, maybe.  A property of the road?  Not that I can see.  Speed
number of lanes, surface and lighting are all properties of the road.
Trees at
the side of the road are an incidental.  Fields at the side of the road are
incidental.  Quaint houses at the side of the road are an incidental.

They are so common as to be inescapable here.  But not, I think of special
interest, perhaps because they are so common.  Here it would be as silly
as insisting on tagging hedge-lined roads, because hedges are prettier than
fences.  Maybe we should have fence-lined roads, too, because some fences
are pretty.

Dangerous also, perhaps, because of leaves being shed in the autumn
in slippery road surfaces.
