I would not make too much of it. The attribute gives the aspect of the
road, not the actual feature with details. So, all cases: both roads look
tree lined at both sides, so they get tree_lined=both.

If the space is significant, better map it as a landuse feature. Sometimes
a complete wildlife reserve can be found between road halves.

Example:  trees - road - trees - cycleway : the road gets tree_lined=both
and the cycleway tree_lined=left (assuming forward direction of the way and
righthand driving).
