I won in 18 turns by joining the too villages the most at west (one of them had a tree, and no flag), and my priority has been to kill the trees.
Then I bought relatively soon a turret at the north west of that territory to protect from the light browns and grow quitely toward the east, and connect with the other small territories.

this is one of the very few islands where building a castle can be vital to winning. 18 days with no surrender is fairly easy. 20 days is downright simple.

I really don't know how some of you beat the level so quickly. I finally beat it after a huge amount of tries, in 43 turns.

On what level?

Afraid I agree with BubbaMJB; challenge mode on clever or very clever in 18 turns w/o surrender? I'm playing version 5.0u, and am having a hard time believing that's possible.

This level can be beaten in 20 days in several variations of play and it can be beaten in 18 days if you make 2 non-intuitive moves. It all hinges on how you play the southwest part of the island. I just played it through 5 times and won easily with each variation.

Try one of the hard ones like 106 or slightly easier on 180.

I did it in 16 days VS (if its the newest version your playing)
Aggressively connect your territories when playing as red at the start
use castles where you know you'll need them in the future e.g. at choke points
