Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Experience and pay tend to be weakly linked for Tree Trimmers — those with more experience do not necessarily bring in higher earnings. Salaries for the relatively untried average out to around $31K, but survey participants with five to 10 years of experience earn a significantly higher median of $35K. After working for 10 to 20 years, Tree Trimmers make a median salary of $37K. As Tree Trimmers reach more than two decades on the job, compensation remains commensurate with experience; the average pay in this group is $42K.
