There are quite a few large 'forested' areas in & around the city of Bissau which, at least some of them look like fruit orchards.  At the moment it looks like people are tagging them as natural=wood.  You should let those who are using the landuse data know that there will be large sections of 'wooded' areas in the map which may actually be agricutlture and can only really be verified by ground survey at this stage.
