btw., we have only been discussing the term forest for landcover=trees, but
there are other places where trees grow, e.g. orchards, groves, copses,
bosks, thickets. We do have orchard as a tag, but we do not have anything

Thickets are generally mapped as natural=scrub? Bosk is a synonymon for

What about the distinction "forest" and "wood"? Is a wood smaller and a
forest denser?
