You only need to get the ceus in the 3 years after passing the exam.

million quid?

I think its about 90 for an ISA member and 120 for a non-member.

I'm still very proud of being a Certified Arborist.

ISA costs

Cheers guys, i guess i should rephrase that a little. What i really want to know is how much you fork out in total; text books, cd-roms etc...

Just got the study guide and cd combo, 75 posted (members price - about 5 off or something like that).


As far as books go, how much money you got? (there are some good threads re books on the site) Try to buy books you need as you can afford them. Mattheck, Shigo, TSO publications and Collins Tree Guide will be good starting points IMO.
