let me just repeat that ...
"In OSM meaning of word used as key frequently has nearly no relation
with meaning of tag."
So in OSM the meaning of the tag "landuse=forestry" can be defined as
"An area used to provide tree produce for human consumption. "
It does not have to take on other meanings, whatever they might be.
Just as the OSM key "natural" does not take on my meaning of the word
A tag "landuse=logging" only describes one activity of an area that
might provide timer for human use, it does not say it will be continued
to be used to provide timber - it could be an area being cleared for
residential use, or farming or ... whatever.
