John Parker is the Technical Director for the Arboricultural Association in the UK, as well as a Stonehouse Town Councillor. He's a serious tree hugger and the perfect guest to help us understand what urban forestry means in this modern day and age. We talk about the concept of an "urban forest", planting the right tree in the right place for the right reason with the right after-care, and learning to think in "tree time".
