Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Around the city of Eskilstuna in Sweden there seems like some map tiles are rebdered with forest and others don't.

The effect is a sharp square with green in it around the city. you can see it here: http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=59.385&lon=16.426&zoom=9&layers=M

It shows up on zoom level 8 and above.

Similar edges are visible elsewhere, e.g. the Sweden/Norway border, but the square around Eskilstuna is especially noticable.

Is this a known problem? Will it be fixed? Is it common? :P

If you look at for example way 194522135 you'll see that this is a Corine import done by Sten Åkerblom, which explains why the forests are limited by a square (and also may have some characteristically computer generated, nagged borders). That not a "problem", and will be "fixed" by someone taking the time and effort to import nearby data.

Or even map it from surveys.
