Planting trees at Sydney Park on National Tree Day last Sunday.

Tree-planting volunteers in Western Australia are waiting for official confirmation of a new Guinness World Record after planting more than 100,000 tree seedlings in one hour.  How fantastic is that!

The current record holder is India with a record of 99,103 trees, which was set in 2012.

The event organized by the ‘Men of the Trees,’ who are well known for their tree planting, gathered more than 2,200 volunteers in Whiteman Park in Perth.  Twelve hundred participants were school children.

Confirmation from Guinness World Record should happen within the next two weeks.
