Men of the Trees World Record Attempt

Last Friday we joined over 2000 people at Whiteman Park for the Men of the Trees attempt to break the World Record for trees planted in an hour. And we did it! Although it will take a few weeks for official confirmation, everyone planted over 100 000 seedlings behind the model aircraft strip in the park.

Well done to Men of the Trees for such a fantastic event! It was very well run and impressive, especially given the logistics involved. Great work by all their team, including Paula, Cliff, Adelle, Thom and all the other workers/ volunteers. And congratulations to everyone who took part!

Make sure you go Like the MOTT Facebook page, and drop by on the Hazelmere nursery on a Friday  (10 am – 2 pm) to purchase some native plants for your own garden – it’s the perfect time to plant 🙂

See a few photos from the day below. I can’t wait to visit them next year and see the progress of the restoration.

Finally, thanks to TTG member Raelene Waugh for organising team 22!
