Today, Iceland is fairly forested country. In last couple of decade farmers are growing forests and in the nearest future it will have a great impact on the Icelandic nation, economicly, sosially and last but not least, environmetally. Forest goes extremely well with other agriculture and it will be a greater resource, perhaps world wide, in the nearest future.
