A youth organisation representing young Muslims from across the United Kingdom has boosted efforts to improve the country’s environment by planting close to 4,000 trees.

Hundreds of volunteers from the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association UK (AMYA) have been out in force to plant trees across Yorkshire and Wales.

The planting of 800 trees a week ago at the National Botanic Garden of Wales, Carmarthenshire, was yesterday topped by a group of close to 150 AMYA volunteers who planted 2,500 trees at the newly developed Dewsbury National Park.

The project formed part of the AMYA’s national environmental tree planting initiative that it is running in partnership with the Woodland Trust and will see the Organisation plant trees across the UK.

Over the past month, AMYA planted 3,900 trees comprising of Oak, Birch, Willow, Poplar, Alder and celebratory oak, raised from an acorn from Sandringham.

Adam Walker, national spokesperson for AMYA stated:

“Our members are absolutely delighted that they had the opportunity to contribute towards improving the environment. Both safeguarding and beautifying the planet is an important part of our faith as Muslims and indeed a united ambition shared by people of all faiths and backgrounds.

Ian Buttersfield, Regional Forestry Manager, stated:

“Working with the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association is always a pleasure. They bring plenty of enthusiasm with them; and it’s great to see people from as far away as Hartlepool and London who come together for a good cause.

”In this project we have 88,000 trees to plant over two and a half years and we chose this group because they always provide the best and most organised volunteers.”
