The English word 'plantation' is used in a number of distinct ways with their specific tags. It should not be used for these:
- landuse=plant_nursery - Plant nurserys, used to grow young seedlings for planting elsewhere; use
- landuse=orchard - plantings of trees and shrubs for fruit or food production;This includes tropical plantations such as coffee, tea, oil palms, bananas, and other tropical fruits.
- landuse=forest - plantings of trees for timber production or for naturalising . The plantation=yes can be added to forests which have obviously been planted to distinguish them from those where logging is selective and tree regeneration is random.
- landuse=forest - plantings of non-tree crops (typically based on historic use of the word 'plantation'), such as for sugar cane, tobacco, cotton. These crops are not permanent or perenials, but are annual crops
