I think you are overreaching a bit on this. For one thing, not all forests
are for wood production - rubber tree plantations for example are for
extracting sap from trees.

Natural=wood seems perfectly correct to me for stands of trees in a more or
less "natural" state whereas landcover=trees implies, at least to me, an
area with planted trees that are not being used for sap, or lumber, etc.,
but more for their decorative or shading effect.

What's your motivation do do this?
