Access values are used to describe the legal access for various facilities.

This tag applies to objects for which usage (with vehicles) is explicitly restricted to vehicles that are used at that moment for forestry purposes only, not limited to the technical class of forestry motor vehicles; e.g. tractors (forestry=*).

access=forestry was proposed together with similar concept of access=agricultural, distinguishing between forestry and agricultural current usage of the road ("a type of traffic"), both "not depending on the type of transport (tractors but also motorcars, bicycles, mopeds are allowed if they are there for agricultural purposes)"[1].

Traffic signs allowing forestry usage are sometimes combined with agricultural usage. For more details, examples and possible tagging mistakes please see access=agricultural.


(both are mentioned in this combined additional sign)
