Ghana Man Sets World Record For Most Trees Hugged In One Hour (Video)

A 29-year-old Ghanaian forestry student, Abubakar Tahiru, has gone viral for his display of special love for trees.

Mr Tahiru smashed the Guinness World Record for most trees hugged in an hour, squeezing a whopping 1,123 trees in his arms.

The impressive feat, captured on video and shared by Guinness World Records, took place at the Tuskegee National Forest in Alabama, USA.  But this wasn’t just a casual stroll through the woods. To qualify for the record, Mr Tahiru had to maintain a brisk pace, averaging nearly 19 hugs per minute.  Each embrace had to be a full-on hug, with both arms wrapped around the tree.  The rules were strict: no-repeat hugs and no harming the trees during the attempt.

This impressive display of dedication to both nature and record-breaking is a story that’s sure to leave you smiling.

Speaking about breaking the record, Mr Tahiru said, “Achieving this world record feels incredibly rewarding. It’s a meaningful gesture to highlight the crucial role of trees in our ecosystem and the urgency of environmental conservation.”

“Most trees hugged in one hour (individual) 1,123 by Abubakar Tahiru”, reads the caption of the post.
