Membership Benefits

The New Zealand Arboricultural Association (NZ Arb) is the primary authority for tree care companies and individuals throughout the country. The NZ Arb provides tree care professionals with the tools to use every day to encourage, foster, improve and educate themselves and others in all aspects of arboriculture throughout New Zealand.
