landuse=conservation means that the primary use of the land is to
conserve natural resources (in this case trees). Often it's land
that's kept in the natural state - around here a developer may grant a
'conservation easement' to the government, meaning that the land
cannot be developed.

It's also rendered on Mapnik and Osmarender:
