I've been adding more landuse, particularly natural=wood, to this area, and before I do much more of it, I wanted to ask if I'm doing it correctly, according to what you see on the satellite imagery?

Looks reasonably good. I see you are also tagging some areas where the trees are planted in rows as landuse=forest which is likely correct too.

I happen to like also putting landcover=trees on natural=wood. And if we had any areas managed for wood products I'd do it on landuse=forest. See https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag%3Alandcover%3Dtrees

Some don't like using landcover=trees but I can't always tell by looking if the trees are they naturally or because of human management. For example, some of your natural=wood areas are in a fairly built up area and those trees might be part of a managed wood lot, maybe an area in a park, etc.
