if a dead tree is still a tree, then yes. Otherwise I wouldn't use this
approach, it is similar to disused, proposed, ruins etc., i.e. the tagging
scheme should try to avoid misinterpretations from not checking for
modifier keys (generally the idea of modifier keys has been deprecated and
alternatives like prefixing "disused:" instead of using disused=yes are
encouraged). "tree_status" also seems too specific, a more generic tag like
"status" would be better IMHO.

OTOH, see:

I'd tag this as artwork.
