ALDI Kerry store staff have teamed up with Green Belt and local landowner Gerry Christie to plant almost 24,000 trees across Cloonafinneela and Cappawee in the county this month.

The planting will celebrate the upcoming opening of the new Aldi Killarney store next month, along with the opening of Aldi Cahersiveen in February 2022.

Aldi is the first retailer in Ireland to commit to planting 1 million native Irish woodland trees by 2025 in partnership with Green Belt.

The native trees will create a wildlife corridor for native species and enhance biodiversity, while also removing more than 160,000 tonnes of carbon emissions over their 100-year life span.

Aldi’s new store in Killarney will be situated next door to the current store, which will close on Wednesday January 12th ahead of the new store opening on Thursday 13th January.

Aldi’s Cahersiveen store will open on Thursday February 17th and will be Aldi’s 150th store in Ireland and Aldi’s 8th store in Kerry.
