About Kelsey Gruenwoldt

Kelsey is a fourth-generation Seattle native with a great appreciation for this beautiful region.

She earned her BA from the University of Washington in the Program on the Environment (2003), an interdisciplinary degree that included Forestry classes. In her studies of old-growth forests, she learned Tree Identification, Stand Management, and Tree Assessment.

Post University, Kelsey worked as the Director of a local environmental company with a mission to help sustainable businesses grow.

When her first child was on the way in 2007, Kelsey decided it was time to help build her own family business. She took her HR, bookkeeping, and managerial skills and put her energy into shaping and growing Seattle Tree Care.

To this day, Kelsey loves making sure that the Seattle Tree Care team is at the ready to provide an outstanding experience for your tree care services. After a lifetime spent in Seattle, Kelsey knows that when the sun shines, we all want to enjoy the great outdoors!
