Eco park with various species of trees set up in Sherpur

BSS, Sherpur

An eco park with over 100 species of fruit-bearing, wood and medicinal trees have been set up on seven acres of land at Urfa Kodal Doa village under Nokla upazila of the district.

An official of Department of Agricultural Extension (DAE) said, “Once it was sand-dominated area… But now the newly built eco-park is filled with different varieties of trees creating a scenic beauty in the locality. All these are possible with intensive research works of agricultural scientists.”

The eco park located in Nokla upazila has brought change to the usual conception as the eco park has been set up with popular varieties of flora, said Deputy Director of Sherpur Office of DAE Md Ashraf Uddin.

He said initially, agriculture scientists were facing difficulties to grow any variety of tree on the sand-dominated land.

Afterwards, scientists created favourable atmosphere to grow popular native varieties of trees and they finally have become successful. “This is how a largely sand mixed infertile land has turned into an eco park…. Now the people in this locality are visiting the echo park as it has already made charming places alongside production of different varieties of fruits,” Ashraf added.
