Aldi plant native woodlands

Aldi join in to the Woodland Environmental Fund

Jan. 17, 2020

Aldi, the retail giant, is continuing to combat climate change and has encouraged the establishment of a native woodland forest in Limerick. Mr Patrick Donovan, TD (@podonovan ) helped launch the forestry initiative on a local farm in Limerick. Green Belt were contracted by the landowner to establish the forestry on their land, and Aldi came on board with a further incentive to the landowner.

The landowner will always own the land and tree's and receives an annual premium for 15 years. As part of the woodland environmental fund, the landowner receives a once off payment from a donor company, such as Aldi.

As the forest industry in Ireland continues to evolve, we are seeing more and more emphasis on native woodlands and a focus on environmental gains in line with economic goals.
