Saturday morning I spent a pleasant time, covering people attempting to break the world record for tree planting. It was a lot of fun, though I am glad I was only taking pictures and not actually doing the digging as that looked like hard work.
The team did really well to plant over 20,000 trees in sixty minutes. Unfortunately all though that broke the World Record their total was beaten by the other two teams involved in the day.
Although they didn't beat the record, they have created the beginnings of a new wood. Hopefully all the volunteers will be able to wander through that wood in twenty years time and enjoy the results of their hard work.
