John, who has recently become Senior Technical Officer for the Arboricultural Association, will be well known to many through his work with the LTOA and Transport for London. He will be speaking about the threat posed from canker stain of plane.

After lunch, we will be taking a 10-minute walk to Saffron Common for an outdoor search for Massaria.
