I don't have a problem with landuse=forestry if that would satisfy the concern that landuse=forest is too widely used. That still leaves the problem of the following tags. landuse=forest 4.7M uses according to taginfo landuse=logging 58K natural=wood 6.6M uses Landuse=logging might be a better tag than landuse=forestry. It has had a wiki  page since 2018. I would recommend using landuse=logging since it is established and depreciating landuse=forest. natural=wood should be used for wooded areas with no commercial logging activity.  https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:landuse%3Dlogging Best, Clifford -- @osm_washington www.snowandsnow.us OpenStreetMap: Maps with a human touch
