[Tagging] Feature Proposal - RFC - (Ground)

Looks like humus is a component of soil. So I think soil covers it, being a
top layer consisting of mixed organic and mineral matter.

To me it is hard to imagine an area as permanently natural=bare_soil.
Wouldn't there always be some kind of vegetation within a year?


Best, Peter Elderson
