[Tagging] deforestation tag

Hello, I am working on validating Tile in Punia, DRC  (

One of the issues I have is that people are marking some deforested areas
in some odd ways:

-landuse = farm

-area = yes, named = Burned forest

-landuse = grass

-natural = land

is there a correct tag to mark deforested areas? You can see the fallen
trees when looking at the DG imagery provided through MapGive. The whole
area is forested so you can clearly see the deforested areas as holes.
