The English word 'plantation' is used in a number of distinct ways outside Openstreetmap. Many of these uses are covered by more specific tags in Openstreetmap. It should not be used for these;

  • plantings of trees for fruit production; use landuse=orchard
  • plantings of trees for timber production or for naturalising; use landuse=forest. 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. A common type of plantation is a Poplar plantation: these are short-lived fast-growing trees without heartwood which are usually clear-felled when productive. Usually to be found on moist soils close to rivers, they can often be spotted by the presence of mistletoe.
  • 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. Use landuse=farmland
