Broads stages tree record attempt
Bookmark and Share
The Norfolk Broads Authority is seeking volunteers to help it in an attempt to break a world record for tree planting.

Staged at Whitlingham Country Park near Norwich on Saturday December 5th, the event will see 25 volunteers play their part in an attempt by the UK national parks to smash the record of trees planted in one hour, with the target being 1,000.

The attempt is taking place to mark the 60th anniversary of the act of parliament setting up the first national parks, as well as occurring 20 years after the Broads gained such status.

Volunteers participating will get their chance to help between 11:00 and 12:00 GMT, following a coppicing demonstration at 10:00 GMT.

The authority has asked those participating to wear "stout footwear" and waterproofs.

Such a requirement may be met by buying waterproof jackets and men's hiking boots or women's hiking boots beforehand.

The Lake District recently announced that its contribution to the record bid would be staged at Masmill Oakwood in the Winlatter Forest Park, with the event being run by local body Bassenthwaite Reflections.
