If things can not be tagged from aerial images then it is better to wait for new ones
rather than add something like that.

> landuse=forest for managed woods maintained by humans.
both are simply used for tree-covered areas, and distinction between them is
either ignored or interpreted in some many ways that it is simply meaningless
(note many natural=wood in Europe, where it is hard to find forest not maintained by humans)

Landcover trees is a rarely used tag, with over half of use in Paraguay that is
result of single series of edits. It is used by tiny minority of mappers.
