Data currency comments

The open data files are updated on a weekly basis. However, tree attributes are generally not updated on a regular basis and it may be several years between updates for many of those attributes. Priorities and resources determine how fast a change in reality is reflected in the database.

The coordinates were primarily provided by the 2016 Tree Inventory project.
