I’m wondering how you in Finland are tagging bog woodlands/räme/skogbevuxen myr?

I don’t find anything much when searching wiki/forums/taginfo and google translate is not very helpful, reading the märe wiki page: "about 60 per cent of all bogs are bogs" =/

None of the wetland tags really fits and I can’t see any consistent usage: bog, marsh, swamp and forest are all used in Sweden.

Re: Räme

Finns are forest people and we have many words meaning wet land and wet forests. Räme, neva, lett, aapa, korpi. As English, German and French languages don't have so many words. I have used only tag k="natural" v="wetland" . Map link example: … 92/29.6365 . Penkkisuo is quit a wet. And Some partsof Tuohtaansuo. map link are quit a dry: . Some parts of Tuohtaansuo have been dryed. It's not so natural any more, but I don't know better tags.
