Iceland tries to bring back trees razed by the Vikings

Jul 20, 2019 - 10:24 PM

In the ninth century, the Vikings had cut down 97% of the original forests of Iceland to serve as building material for houses and to make way for grazing pastures

Adalsteinn Sigurgeirsson, Deputy director of the Icelandic Forest Service takes part in tree planting at Lava filde near Thorlakshofn, Iceland on May 21, 2019. Before being colonised by the Vikings, Iceland was lush with forests but the fearsome warriors razed everything to the ground and the nation is now struggling to reforest the island. The country is considered the least forested in Europe; indeed, forests in Iceland are so rare, or their trees so young, that it is commonly joked that those lost in the woods only need to stand up to find their way.
