More than 1,000 people grabbed a tree and hugged it for at least a minute at the Korea National Arboretum in Pocheon, Gyeonggi Province on Saturday. The arboreal display of affection was organized to mark the International Day of Forests, and won the tree-huggers a place in the record books. The event drew 1,226 tree-huggers, obliterating the Guinness Record of 936 set in Portland, Oregon, in 2013.
