Senior Forestry Consultant, Matthew Willetts, on the BBC Radio 4 Farming Today Programme – talking Tree Health. Catch it here on iPlayer.

“The onset of autumn is often seen as the ideal time for those in woodland management to take stock of tree diseases: as the leaves fall, it’s easier to assess the trunk and boughs underneath. It’s also when the Forestry Commission carries out its annual fly-over, to photograph from the air how diseases are affecting the UK as a whole. Howard Shannon has been to Northamptonshire to meet Matthew Willetts, Senior Forestry Consultant for Lockhart Garratt, and Nicola Spence, Chief Plant Health Officer from Defra.”  Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra)
