Commonly used by mistake

The tag landuse=wood is a curious hybrid between natural=wood and landuse=forest. This hybrid tag has existed in the database in fairly large numbers for a long time due to people using it by mistake when intending one or the other of those tags. As you can imagine, it's an easy mistake to make, and quite a few people have tagged quite a few patches of trees with this tag.
