I differ.

I would use natural=wood for the tree coverage.

Then there is no conflict with a landuse tag.

And natural=wood does mean tree covered ... and the key natural 
incorporates 'non natural' i.e things altered or managed by man.

The key landuse should be to used describe the primary use of land by 
humans, not the land cover but it's use.
