Description:

Bright green beetle est 2-2.5cm body.
This was fascinating - I heard a 'munching sound' on a walk - looking up noted there were hundreds / thousands of these beetles eating their way through the tops of three young ash trees. Plenty of damage to the trees was occuring as can be seen in the picture.
