The longest time to hug a tree is 16 hr 6 sec, and was achieved by Faith Patricia Ariokot (Uganda), in Kampala, Uganda, on 16 January 2024.

Faith is an environmental activist and has passion for planting trees. She wants to encourage people to also enjoy tree planting so decided to achieve this record to draw more attention to the cause.

Throughout the day, drummers attended to hit the drum, marking each hour completed. Leaves were thrown on the 8th hour to signify that the record was officially broken, although she went the extra mile and doubled this time to 16 hours and 6 seconds.
