Clearcut - former landuse=forest or natural=wood areas, where most or all trees are uniformly cut down.

How to map

Create an area and tag it man_made=clearcut. This would normally be a replacement for former landuse=forest or natural=wood areas and would simply be a edit of those tags to man_made=clearcut.

If there is vegetation present, add a suitable tag such as natural=scrub for bushes, shrubs and very small trees (transitional scrub) or landuse=meadow for grasses and herbs (transitional meadow). See vegetation for more options.


This does not render (2018). The usage is low.
