What do you think, what are the odds?

Birch is the most common forest tree in Iceland and forms forests and shrubs on dry land up to 400–450 m above sea level. Previously, it was widespread throughout the lowlands of the country and formed in many places continuous forests. The highest height of the birch is about   . . . . all information about the place can be found at:   https://www.patreon.com/RafnSig
