Tree planters working on the Wabigoon Forest made a huge contribution towards a Guinness World Record for the most trees planted in 1 hour simultaneously in multiple locations by groups of 25 to 100.
"We appreciate the effort by the tree planters of Brinkman and Associates Reforestation, working with us to put forward a significant contribution to this Guinness World Record attempt," said Bonny Skene, Regional Public Affairs Manager at Domtar. "The future of our forests depends on the actions we take today-- to ensure that the working forests in our region remain healthy and productive for generations to come."
The team of 25 tree planters safely planted just over 10,000 trees in 60 minutes.
The attempt involved teams from across North America was coordinated by the Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI®). Results of all participating groups will be combined and the total will be verified by Guinness in the coming weeks.
