It’s not quite true. There are trees in Greenland, but when you see them, you’ll probably think they are shrubs. Hardy little buggers, but little more than knee high. There are trees in the south of Greenland. There’s an experimental plantation of about 100 trees. One day it might be a small wood.
It’s going to take a while!
But photos like these show how dependent Greenlanders are (more specifically were) on the sea.
The sea gives meat, vegetables (if you eat the seaweed) and water – lumps of ice for melting.
