The tag man_made=clearcut is used to map a Clearcut, a former landuse=forest or natural=wood area where all or almost all trees have been uniformly cut down.
How to map
Create an area and tag it man_made=clearcut. If there is a surrounding landuse=forest or natural=wood area, edit the woodland area or create a multipolygon to exclude the clearcut from the area of the woodland or forest.
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.
