I am new to this. I am trying to help out with areas I know. These areas are 2 acre residential lots. The current polygons seem very sporadic and will require lots of editing. Just trying to figure out how to go about mapping these. Would what have be correct?

Yes, that is it.

landuse=residential natural=wood on the same way doesn't make much sense here, but maybe you don't realize you can overlap different layers?

Way 426571814 does seem like a residential area, but is not entirely tree-covered so I would remove the natural=wood tag from this way. To indicate the area that is tree-covered, you could create a new way following the treeline that is tagged natural=wood. There might be areas (like near the road to the southernmost edge) where the residential way and the wood way overlap, but mostly in this case the wood way will be a separate way within the residential way.
