Introducing a new afforestation project in Iceland! While Iceland used to have up to 40% forest cover centuries ago, deforestation has reduced this to just 5% today, and since so much time has gone by that’s why this unique project is categorized as afforestation as opposed to reforestation. This 170 hectare area will involve planting trees on the lower, south-facing slopes on the farm “Dragon’s Nest” named after its’ former owner. The area is degraded former grazing land with low-growing and largely non-continuous vegetation, and a lot of ecological potential to become a forest once again. The main goals of this project are carbon sequestration and soil conservation.
