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 [1] 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.
