Hello: Read thru many Q&A, after 30 minutes I can't find a clear-cut answer how to tag a small business (e.g. one of many located in one larger building, i.e. as single points). Specifically, 1. a cutting trees business, 2. lawn mowing, 3. landscaping. 4. cleaning/renovating apartments (when a tenant moves out, they are hired to replace carpets or clean them, repaint walls. 5. signage printers/makers.

Thank you Martin

If I were mapping these I'd probably go with a generic office=company for the offices themselves with craft tags where available:

  1. there doesn't seem to be something well established for this. There appears to be a single craft=tree_surgeon and 15 craft=arborist according to taginfo so I'd probably go with the latter.
  2. craft=gardener with a brief description of scope
  3. craft=gardener
  4. no good match I'm aware of possibly craft=interior_decorator or craft=painter
  5. either craft=printer or craft=printmaker (if small run artistic stuff).

You can of course use any tags you like, but if you invent one it is probably a good idea to run it past some people in the community forums in case they can spot any potential misinterpretation or conflicts with existing schemes.
