Food on land tiles is harvested as Grain; on water tiles, as Fish. All forest tiles may be plowed by a Pioneer to transform them into a treeless terrain type:

Terrain Converts to
Boreal forest Tundra
Broadleaf forest Prairie
Conifer forest Grassland
Mixed forest Plains
Rain forest Swamp
Scrub forest Desert
Tropical forest Savannah
Wetland forest Marsh

This conversion is permanent. As a side effect, it also produces some lumber in the near colony.
