I've used https://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/tags/landuse=forestry for 
that, but almost no-one uses that (literally in single figures).  See 
e.g. https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/370079612 and 
for an example rendering.  If there's a better tagging option that 
doesn't conflict with what's in OSM already I'm happy to be enlightened.

Best Regards,
