My uneducated opinion is no, these don't help. They could potentially help if the volume of questions on this site was so high that the organization was useful, but as it stand even for searchability with the volume of questions here searching for "walnut" is as effective as "[walnut]". Having the tags, while theoretically it might make sense, realistically it doesn't add much (although they don't seem to hurt so I'm not strongly anti either aside from my personal like of minimalism).

Plus a lot of the questions can be generally applied anyways.

For now maybe just [hardwood] and [softwood], maybe.
