Just for completeness, and should anyone search the forum with a
similar problem,the answer lay in the wide margins used by default in
the article class, so new headers are:

#+LATEX_HEADER: \usepackage{tikz}
#+LATEX_HEADER: \usetikzlibrary{mindmap,trees}
#+LATEX_HEADER: \usepackage[a4paper, left=3cm,right=2cm]{geometry}
