Is there any easy and straight forward method to insert OSM data i.e. OSM nodes and ways with tags and coordinate information into R-tree using python?

Welcome to the site! Couple of clarifications: what are you looking to do with this data? I'm assuming that you're looking to get a fast lookup on the data, but is this only for a few lookups? And how are you looking to store your data? Is there a reason you wouldn't store it in PostGIS (and get the free R-Tree index from PostGIS along with it)? –  om_henners Jul 5 '13 at 5:55
