Tree O'Clock world record attempt

14 December 2009

Volunteers and community groups from across The Mersey Forest teamed up this month for a Guinness World Record attempt to plant as many trees as possible in one hour across multiple locations.


The BBC Breathing Places event saw The Friends of Griffin Wood (check out their new blog) team up with St.Helens' Ramblers to plant over 100 trees at Griffin Wood, the Friends of Anderton and Marbury plant 80 trees (report here), and Speke's Friends of Mill Wood and Alder Wood collaborating with Lancashire Wildlife Trust to plant 400 trees.


With further tree planting happening at Church Wood in Whitegate, Cheshire, and at Kentmere Avenue allotments, St.Helens, all involved are waiting with baited breath to see if the current record of 653,000 trees nationwide has been broken.

At the time of writing, the final totals are still being feverishly calculated at BBC HQ, so keep an eye on the Tree O'Clock website for the latest news.
