At the Begum Rokeya University campus planted 30,000 trees to protect the environment


Once Rangpur Begum Rokeya University, Bangladesh, was treeless but now became a green hotspot. Within the last nine years, the number of trees on the entire campus has increased to 36 thousand.

There are a total of 300 species of trees on this campus. The whole campus is attracting thousands of visitors, including students from different parts.

Back in 2013, when the University started its journey, students would be disappointed to come to the treeless campus. There was no shade to stand underneath to escape from the hot sun.

Later, Professor Abu Sala Mohammad Wadudur Rahman, Head of the Bangla Department of the University, with the help of students and staff, collected saplings of different species from individuals and organizations from other parts of the country and started planting them on campus.

In just nine years, there are now 36,000 trees of 300 species all over the campus. It is like a beautiful green ceremony.

There are various species of plants, including medicinal, fruit, and forest. No other University in the country has such vast varieties of trees.

Wadudur Rahman said, ‘Wherever I got the news, I went and collected saplings. We were more interested in collecting seedlings of rare species of trees. I have brought seedlings of many rare species from different areas. Which are now standing in their glory. ‘

Rare species of trees include agar, Itoria, udal, koinar, kumbhi, kursi, kusum, kaizelia, kaufal, kazuvad, kanaidinga, kevevuia, glyricidia, chapalish, chalmugra, chikrashi, junglivanda, jacarandi, Jhumkolata, Tikchambul, Dhakijam, Tamal, Talmugra, Tun, Telsur, Nagalingam, Nilmanilata, Padauk, Panial, Palam, Putranjib (2) Many trees including Banashra, Bajna, Bijalghanta, Buddha Coconut, Bhuikadam, Manimala, Mahua, Mylam, Raktan, Roskau, Lakat, Lalsonalu, Loha, Civit, Sinduri, Sundari, Sultan Champa, Ashoka, Haldu, Hijal (Bangla Names).

“Nowhere else in Bangladesh can so many trees be found in one place. Many of these rare species of trees may be lost.

As these trees have enriched the University, people come from far and wide searching for these trees. We expect Rangpur Rokeya University to be a museum of trees,” the professor added.

Thousands of trees throughout the campus. Mostly large. The trees were planted in a planned manner. Somewhere rows of trees and somewhere planting trees over a wide area. Mostly nutritious.

From a four- or five-story University building, the whole campus feels like a vast forest surrounded by greenery—numerous birds sitting on the branches of the trees. Moreover, there is the sound of sweet chirping.

Afsana Jahan, Rodela, and Shafiq, English department students, said, “We sit under trees and gossip. We also study in such a quiet environment.

We are proud to be a student of this University because of the fresh air of the campus surrounded by greenery and the unique beauty of nature. ‘

A visitor said that everyone was fascinated by the greenery and rare species of plants on the university campus. Visitors come to visit from different areas. They are fascinated by this eye-catching beauty. They want the university campus to be full of new plants.

University Proctor Golam Rabbani said, ‘There are ten employees to take care of the trees. They are regularly attending. There are plans to plant more trees. We want to make it a tree museum. “
