Thanks for the tip Marc, that sounds actually the most reasonable solution at the moment.

Using place=locality works. But would there be any support for the more specific place=forest, like Mateusz Konieczny mentions?

Sometimes leisure=nature_reserve could work (example https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/681749435), but of course not always. What other main tag could be added here?
