Arbori is located in a direct line some 12 km south of Marignana and 20 km north of Sarrola-Carcopino. Access to the commune is by the road D1 which runs by a tortuous route north from Sari-d'Orcino through the commune to the village then continues north to Vico. Apart from the village there are also the hamlets of Mercolaccia and Parapoghiu. The commune is remote, mountainous, and heavily forested although with a small patch of farmland in the centre.
The eastern border is marked by a large river which flows south to join another river flowing west marking the southern boundary of the commune and joining the sea at Le Liamone.

(Not all data is known)
In 2009 the commune had 999 inhabitants. The evolution of the number of inhabitants is known from the population censuses conducted in the commune since 1793. From the 21st century, a census of communes with fewer than 10,000 inhabitants is held every five years, unlike larger towns that have a sample survey every year.[Note 1]

Notes and references
- At the beginning of the 21st century, the methods of identification have been modified by Law No. 2002-276 of 27 February 2002, the so-called "law of local democracy" and in particular Title V "census operations" allows, after a transitional period running from 2004 to 2008, the annual publication of the legal population of the different French administrative districts. For communes with a population greater than 10,000 inhabitants, a sample survey is conducted annually, the entire territory of these communes is taken into account at the end of the period of five years. The first "legal population" after 1999 under this new law came into force on 1 January 2009 and was based on the census of 2006.
