Listowel students to plant 300 trees as part of global tree planting initiative

Students from Listowel will plant 300 trees as part of a global tree planting initiative.

The ‘Easy Treesie’ project aims to plant one million trees in Ireland by 2023.

The sixth class and Transition Year students in Listowel will host a Climate Action Day tomorrow to mark National Tree Week.

Over 40 children will plant trees in the Childers Park and Woodlands at Bridge Road.

300 saplings are being supplied by Kerry County Council for the project.

Staff from the Municipal District Operations Department along with members of the Listowel Tidy Town’s Group will provide support to the children on the day.
