Following the recommendations of Jagerbomber we have visited Akureyri - Iceland, really beautiful, and really no trees are seen ... that aspect will have to be improved.

Seems satellites do not really detect any vegetation there.
Here's for example the global forest change https://earthenginepartners.appspot.com/science-2013-global-forest

Unfortunately also https://s2maps.eu/ data, which we used for Earth8, do not show any reliable way of detecting trees there.

Greetings Cameni
The color is confusing, from above they look like land without trees, at ground level, they are there.

Looks more like shrubs. But anyway, we cannot go around the world looking for trees and then planting them manually :)
We need a way to identify them from satellite data, which is usually done with the help of additional infrared satellite channels.

Also, the Global Forest data are defined only for trees higher than 5m, so it may have problems detecting those.
