Woodland with no forestry.
There are major differences in the way this tag and landuse=forest are used by some Openstreetmap users. Some use this tag to show an area is covered in trees, others use it for woodland not impacted by human maintenance. This problem is explained in the page Forest.
natural=wood applies to nodes and areas.
