It's not a term this Englishman has heard of.  But there are a lot of
specialist terms I've
learned since I started mapping.  So I did some googling.  It doesn't
appear to be a
term in English.  It seems to be something found in southern and central
Spain,
and also southern Portugal (where it's called a montado).  See
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dehesa

The Wikipedia article suggests a possibility for a landuse tag:
landuse=agrosylvopastoral.
A bit of a mouthful, but perhaps gets around the objection to calling it
agroforestry.  An
alternative found at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Silvopasture would be
landuse=sylvopasture.
Disadvantage of either of those is they may not be intuitively obvious.
Advantage is we
don't have to come up with subtags to define it.
