Brian hit a good point here: much forest tracks are used only when the sector is logged, typically once every 5-10 years, and the track seemingly fells into disuse between the loggings. This is even worse for clearcuts. My point is, beware about forest tracks, they may often seem disused, without really be.

> If access roads to a forestry area are heavily used at the moment, because a specific area is being harvested at that moment, these are still low-usage roads when considered over a general timespan.
> If you are talking about arterial roads that are used to access a larger network of access roads to forestry areas, and are used continuously to access different logging spots, this is now a road network and these are functionally not track roads -- these are roads used to access other roads, and thus are better tagged as unclassified or perhaps you could argue service.
