Whinlatter Forest in the Lake District is to be the scene of an unusual record attempt on December 5th, when a bid will be made to plant the most trees in 60 minutes.
BBC Breathing Places is looking to break the record of 653,143 trees being planted in one hour rep and volunteers are being sought by Bassenthwaite Reflections, a group set up using heritage lottery funding.
The attempt will take place at Masmill Oakwood and head of woodlands for Bassenthwaite Reflections Rachel Graham said: "Between 11 am and 12 noon people across the country will take part in this fantastic event. Please come along and help us break a record."
Those turning up may wish to wear men's walking shoes
or women's walking shoes
, to deal with the potentially muddy conditions.
According to the Forestry Commission, Whinlatter Forest Park is the only true mountain forest park in England, as it rises to a height of 791 metres (2,595 ft) - the top of Grisaedale Pike
As well as offering walking, the forest also has a mountain bike
