Yes, this was a big import done from OGD in Vienna with about 300k
trees about 8 years ago IIRC and there are quite some problems with them
(e.g., regarding keeping them up to date).

However, I am not so sure if this is a good example for an argument
against "overtagging" though. Most of these trees are tagged with quite
many details (species, height, circumference of the trunk,
diameter_crown, a start_date) and thus are regularly used to showcase
proof of concepts like 3d mapping based on OSM data where these tags
are used, cf.
This very clearly shows how such data can be beneficial although
looking redundantly and not fitting initially.

(I was not involved in the import and would not support a similar
operation in the future but not because of the questions at hand but
Kind regards/Mit freundlichen Grüßen, Stefan Tauner
