Siglufjörður Forestry Association 80 years

Með september 23, 2020 News

The Siglufjörður Forestry Association was founded on September 22, 1940 and thus just turned 80. The association initally got land in the eastern part of Hólsdalur and began planting there, but the land proved too difficult plant in, so the association moved to Skarðdsalur, which has been the main forestry site of the association since and is now the most northern planted forest in Iceland.

The Icelandic Forestry Association wishes the Siglufjörður Forestry Association a happy birthday!

A brief overview of the association‘s activities (in Icelandic) in honour of the birthday is available on the Trölli website.
