Trailteam tree planting days…

This summer, as well as the regular trail maintenance projects, our teams have also been involved in tree planting for the first time. In July our volunteers joined staff at the nearby Tumastaðir Forestry Station to help plant 1800 poplars.

It is a small beginning for us, be we hope to return during the next weeks and continue the work. This season our teams have also been involved in series of revegetation projects on damaged areas within Thórsmörk and Goðaland using native willow.

Tree planting in Iceland is now gathering pace inline with the country’s climate strategy which includes carbon sequestration through afforestation and revegetation. Our teams have been excited to get involved and we hope to make these planting days a permanent feature within our volunteer programme.

A big thank you to our colleagues at Tumastaðir for hosting the groups. We look forward to our next visit and continuing the work.
