Not a lot of trees in northern Greenland AFAIK.  Is there a fuel dump in that area? 
The ice was here, the ice was there,   
The ice was all around:
It crack'd and growl'd, and roar'd and howl'd,   
Like noises in a swound!

Lots of low growing vegetation adapted to cold dry conditions up there. Last year I believe there were fires due to drought - UK had bad heath land fires this year - similar nature of vegetation (+ peat underneath).
