As usual I disagree with  both those misuse of the key landuse.

The value landuse=forest should not be used for any tree covered area 
... use the existing value natural=wood for that, even if 'managed'.

See https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Forest for more discussion on 
this topic.


Grass misuse is historical. It can also be tagged landcover=grass.
