The most trees planted in 24 hours by a team at multiple locations is 50,414,058 and was achieved by the Uttar Pradesh Forest Department of the Government of Uttar Pradesh (India), at 6,146 locations across Uttar Pradesh, India, on 11-12 July 2016.
The saplings were planted alongside roads and railways, and on public land. The organizers of this record-breaking attempt hope that the growth of so many new trees in India will help to mitigate the effects of climate change.
The use of paper during the planning and execution of the attempt was kept to a minimum.
