Why not natural=wood? That does not exclude "managed".
Other things may also be "managed" - swamps, lakes, heath and scrub for 

How do you know it is 'managed'???
If you know it is "managed" .. what is it "managed" for?

Should there be a tagging system for this "management"?
If so it has to be separate from trees as those are not the only thing 
that are managed.

The key produce can be used to specify the output, just as it can be for 
the farmers field.
There are no OSM tags to specify leisure/wildlife .. and those could be 
applied to lakes, national parks, etc.
