First of all: "there many, many opinions how natural=wood and landuse=forest differ and
some people think that his makes distinction between this tags useless" is not the same as
"there is no difference".

And landuse=forest is used more than three million times

Note that many are not using "forestry" to mean "using  forest  toproduce wood".
See  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Forestry <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Forestry> for an example.
