Tree O'Clock - world record attempt

Between 11am and 12 noon on Saturday December the 5th BBC Breathing Places is attempting to break the world record for the most trees planted in one hour. Tree O’Clock, as the attempt is known, is part of the UK’s National Tree Week, which this year runs from the 25th of November to the 6th of December.

To take part in Tree O’Clock you just have to follow four steps: 1) Get a tree – 2) Plant a tree – 3) Take a photo as proof – 4) Email your photo to the BBC.

There are over a thousand free tree give-away schemes planned for garden centres and Forestry Commission visitor centres across the country in the run-up to the record attempt. All the information you need to participate can be found on the Tree O’Clock page here.

The record currently stands at 653,143. Go Plant!
