A YOUTH organisation representing young Muslims has planted around 2,500 trees.

Dozens of volunteers from the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association (AMYA) turned out in force to plant trees in the newly-developed Dewsbury Country Park.

The project formed part of the AMYA’s national environmental tree planting initiative which runs in partnership with The Woodland Trust.

The trees planted included sessile oak, silver birch, alder, broad leaved lime, hornbeam and mountain ash.

The latest planting session came a week after volunteers planted 800 trees at the National Botanic Garden of Wales, based in Carmarthenshire.

Dr Bilal Bhatti, a spokesman for AMYA Yorkshire, said:

“Our members are absolutely delighted 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.

“Events such as these also help to promote good community relations and our members are keen to get involved in similar schemes in the future.”

Some 2,350 trees were planted in Dewsbury with volunteers coming from as far afield as London, Liverpool and Peterborough.
