Eleven of the staff planted  1800 trees about 10km along the coast north of Reykholar in the area Barmahlíð. It is rented by the local reforestation association for 100 years for reforestation. The area is a former woodland, Barmahlíð, that has been replanted since 1959. Some of the highest tress in the Westfjords are to be found in the current forest. 

The 1800 trees were planted in a sickle forming patch that opens towards the south east. In a few years the staff could use this patch to enjoy the shelter for barbequing in their plantation. It took about 2,5 hours to plant and aftewards everybody enjopyed a good dinner at hotel Bjarkarlundur.
