Long's friend Sarah Medley, owner of Studio 59 Aveda Salon and Spa, organized activities for Long and spectators including dance, yoga and guided meditation during the attempt.

The attempt was live-streamed on the World Record Tree Hug page on Facebook.

Long's feat raised money for the local Audubon Society.
