Vitalik Buterin refers in his blog to "State Tree Pruning".

Gavin Wood more recently talks about the "State Trie Pruning".

Since also Christian Reitwiessner in his most recent post also refers to state trie pruning, I would suggest to rename the tags using the term trie.

The wikipedia entry also explains why trie is the more correct term.

Tree is the more general term; trie is a more precise term technically since it's a more specific type of tree... Trie is more nitpicky. I think using the general term, "tree", is better for tagging purposes and is accurate enough.
