A Webinar ‘Around the World in 80 Trees’ given by Jonathan Drori CBE for The Liveries Wood Group and other Livery Companies

Dear Fellow Liveryman and Freeman,

As the current Chairman of the Liveries Wood Group I am delighted to invite you to this webinar where Jonathan Drori, CBE has kindly agreed to give a presentation on his book ‘Around the World in 80 Trees’. Trees lay at the heart of the Crafts that are represented by members of the Liveries Wood Group and the Companies invited to join us, that is why we felt it most relevant to ask Jonathan to come and talk to us.

Jonathan Drori, CBE is a Liveryman and Court Assistant of the Stationers’ Company, a Trustee of The Eden Project and an Ambassador for the WWF. He has been a Trustee of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew and The Woodland Trust and was Executive Producer of more than fifty primetime TV series on science and technology. More information is provided on Jon’s website including his contact details.

His book has received many plaudits, such as “Beautiful to behold and to read” – THE SUNDAY TIMES “An arboreal odyssey” – NATURE “One of the most quietly beautiful books of the year” – DAILY MAIL “Jonathan Drori’s deep-seated love of nature is contagious in this tree-by-tree journey across countries and continents. A book to take your time over” – WIRED

If you and your guests would like to join this webinar on Wednesday 26th May at 5.45 for a 6pm start then please register at this link.

I am most grateful to the Master Furniture Maker David Woodward, Past Master Dr Tony Smart MBE, Liveryman Debbie Johnson, their Clerk Jonny Westbrooke and Events Manager Sally Kent for enabling us to use the registration facility for the webinar,

Kind regards,

David Mortlock
Master Wheelwright
