Louise Levy – Owner

Louise is the founder of Levy Tree Care. Since graduating from Carleton College in 1989 Louise has worked as a graduate research assistant in Oregon and Alaska, served on the City of Duluth citizen Tree Commission, worked at the University of Minnesota Cloquet Forestry Center, and assisted Duluth with its tree inventory and tree planting program. Her experience in traditional and urban forestry gives her a well-rounded perspective on trees.

Louise loves getting to know a client’s tree(s) and learning what is important about that tree to its owner. “Each tree has a history, and that history can be seen in its trunk and branches. Each species and variety has its own personality, its own particular branch architecture, character.” Listening to Louise talk about trees you can understand her care for trees reaches deep and why her nickname is “The Ancient One.”
