Cutting lines have their own tag:

Please, don't add parcels in OSM. What's the interest ? Nodody is
allowed to modify them (but they will be by accident) and it's not
verifiable : perfect candidat for an external mashup kept ouside OSM.
Setup your own WMS/TMS server if you don't have already one, ask a GIS
colleague to help you.
If you see some markers in the forest, add the markers.
