Birch in the honour of Ms. Finnbogadóttir

At the 28 of June, Iceland will celebrate that 35 years ago Vigdís Finnbogadóttir was the world´s first democratically elected female head of state. One of the highlights of the celebration is when Icelandic birch will be planted in all communes in Iceland. In Ms. Finnbogadóttir’s  presidency she always planted birch, when visiting the regions.

Eimskip contributes to the celebration by transporting the birch all around the country.

Magnús Gunnarsson, Head of the Icelandic Forestry Association and Gylfi Sigfússon, Eimskip President/CEO.
