Skógar is a reforestation project in Þorskafjörður, situated in the Westfjords of Iceland. The aim of the project is to promote well-being and justice through collaboration and by working closely with local land owners, organizations and with the Icelandic Forest Service to achieve soil preservation and reforestation. Every year a dedicated group of people dedicate hundreds of hours to cultivating the forest in Skógar, with over 130,000 trees planted since 2006. The continuity of the reforestation work over many decades has offered the community tremendous opportunities to collaborate with individuals, NGOs, government agencies and international organizations.
