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. Average salaries for inexperienced employees average out to around $31K, but folks who have five to 10 years of experience earn a higher median of $34K. For Tree Trimmers, 10 to 20 years of experience on the job amounts to an average salary of $36K. In the end, the overall pattern seems to be that more experience generally corresponds to higher pay; a Tree Trimmer with more than 20 years of experience can earn $43K on average.
