Fellow Membership

Fellowship from just £21.50 per month or £258.00  a year


Fellowship is the highest membership grade available to our members; recognising not only knowledge, experience and dedication to your chosen specialism within Arboriculture, but your contribution to the industry and the Association.

Our Fellow members are individuals who exemplify the Associations values; and represent the best of arboriculture in their chosen career path. They can be from any specialism; consultancy, contracting, education, local authority/government, or science and research; but what they have in common is a passion for arboriculture, and for sharing this with others.

Key Benefits

You will have the right to use ‘FArborA’ after your name and use the Fellow Member Logo on your reports, in your email footers and on business cards. You will also receive our Fellow member pin badge.

You will continue to receive our quarterly ARB Magazines and Arboricultural Journals, with full access to back issues of these online.

Fellowship is an individual membership grade, so the benefits will only apply to the individual applicant.



To be eligible for Fellowship you must have been a Professional member for at least five consecutive years before applying. There are a series of other criteria to be met, which cover your professional experience and knowledge and your contribution to arboriculture in a wider sense.

Fellowship applications are anonymised and reviewed by a panel of your peers, which may include existing Fellows, Trustees and Committee members. It is on their recommendation that Fellowship is conferred.

To check whether you meet the requirements please use our eligibility checker or review the application form.

The CPD requirement for Fellows is 20 hours per year.
