Cory Fitzpatrick, Arborist Representative at Bartlett Tree Experts, works out of our Seattle, WA office.
More about Cory Fitzpatrick
Growing up on an apple and cherry orchard, Cory began work in and around trees at an early age. Learning the fundamentals of pollination and proper pruning inspired him to later follow his current passion into the industry of Arboriculture. Working as a climbing arborist for the first four years of his career, Cory quickly found that his love for trees went beyond simply caring for them. Seeing the need for a greater understanding of tree care in the urban and residential environment, Cory turned his attention to educating and providing the highest level of tree care service to the public as an Arborist Representative in the greater Seattle area. As an ISA Certified Arborist, Tree Risk Assessor, and TCIA Tree Care Safety Professional, Cory has found his calling with Bartlett Tree Experts and feels truly grateful to spread his enthusiasm for this increasingly important industry.
What Our Customers Are Saying About Cory Fitzpatrick
Before I provide specifics, I will frame this evaluation. I have managed many offices; therefore, many employees. My offices were the most quantitatively productive in the country I worked for a Federal organisation. Ultimately, I wrote policy for 6400 employees. In the course of working with Cory, my assessment was that, in any available capacity, I would value him as a team member. I see him as rising rapidly through the ranks. Cory is an outstanding representative for your company. Let me assure you that I have no knowledge of Cory in any capacity other than as a representative for Bartlett. At the commencement of my relationship with Bartlett, my trees were and still are in great distress. I had many questions around this rapidly evolving and unsettling situation. Multiple species were and are involved. Cory was always available instantaneously with responses to my many questions and concerns
even while he was on vacation or away from the job. I was stunned that he responded, immediately, while out of the office. Finally and most importantly, I trust Cory's educated, experienced, and balanced assessment for treatment protocol, not just one tree, but for potentially tens of thousands of dollars in treasured, decade old trees.
Mirel S., Edmonds, WA
I appreciate Cory's promptness and candor in fielding my unknowledgeable questions about my trees and suggesting maintenance that I was not even aware of. He's a great help.
Cathy P., Seattle, WA
Cory was very informative when he came to check out the tree. I needed trimming on a very large Western Red Cedar. He explained the tree's environmental needs. The crew arrived right on time and set to work after I showed them the tree. They also were informative and pleasantly answered my questions. The young man checked with me twice to be sure the work I wanted done was completed to my satisfaction. Great service. Will use them in the future.
Cindy M., Everett, WA
Everyone at Bartlett was extremely courteous and nice. When they came out to give me an estimate, they were extremely knowledgeable and talked to me about all my plants, not just the trees I needed trimmed. They did not pressure me to do more than I was asking for, and in fact, advised me of a couple of things I could do myself to save money. When they came to do the job, they were polite, followed Covid safety protocol, and did not even mind my dog jumping on them. They did a great job trimming my trees. I especially appreciated their honesty about not wanting to over trim to maintain the health of the trees. They checked with me before they left to make sure the job was done to my satisfaction and cleaned up everything.
Patricia A., Shoreline, WA
Showed up not only prompt but early. Kind, respectful, truly cared about the work they do and worked non-stop. With husband working overseas, it was common for me to be disappointed with hired contractors. I am beyond grateful for Bartlett and the entire crew for restoring my faith in humanity and a job far exceeding my expectations.
Karolyn B., Lynnwood, WA
I really appreciate how early you were able to work us into your schedule. That was very considerate. The workers that came to remove our Maple were so quiet I wondered why they had not started yet. When I checked the tree was almost down. They were very efficient focused on there work. Awesome job. We are looking forward to our other tree being pruned in December.
Carolyn B., Seattle, WA
Every contact I had was very professional. While on the property Cory not only carefully assessed the Magnolia tree in making an estimate for pruning It to address its health and appearance but also took time to look at other trees on the property and provide information on them. He took time to talk with me to be sure the crews work would meet my expectations. I hope Bartlett Tree experts will become the annual caretaker for the Magnolia tree. Thank you for very professional service.
Sarah Phillips, Seattle, WA
Over the past five years I have hired Bartlett for various jobs, including trimming trees on my property, removing downed trees from power lines, treating ailing trees. They have always done an excellent job and they are always responsive and courteous.
Leo S., Seattle, WA
Very friendly and knowledgeable crew who enjoyed working on the variety of trees on our property. They took their time, explained what they were going to do, and left the property immaculate. Cory is a wonderful representative.
Kathy K., Shoreline, WA
We were searching for an experienced arborist to advise us on our very large and mature large leaf Maple tree which we had two bids saying it must be cut down. Cory came out and we discussed the tree's issues and we developed a treatment plan which included the crew doing selective trimming and a follow up root treatment in the fall. This was exactly what we were hoping to hear as to how we could preserve our tree rather than just cutting it down. The crew of Austin and Will were very experienced and left our premises in perfect order.
Jim M., Shoreline, WA
All representatives and crew were attentive, interactive, considerate, and most pleasant to work with. Should also mention knowledgeable and skilled.
Sharon L., Edmonds, WA
Very thoughtful and knowledgable consultation to start. Great tree project with very caring technicians. Very efficient and professional experience with tree care and treatments. Very positive experience.

Thanks to Cory and the team for all the good work you do. I really appreciate the professional expertise and the great customer service. The day of pruning went well, and you will be doing the shrub treatments next. Just let me know when.
Carol M., Seattle, WA
The crew who came to prune some bushes and trees were knowledgeable, professional, and courteous. I was interested in learning how to prune more effectively and they generously shared their knowledge and insights.
Laura M., Seattle, WA
There was a miscommunication for the job on the initial visit but Cory and his crew came back at a later date and went above and beyond my expectations for completing the job.
Tom B., Edmonds, WA
I really like working with Cory, especially doing an annual walk-about to make plans for the immediate year and the next years. Thanks to Trevor for letting me know when he is coming to do a treatment and spending a few moments to answer questions.
Carol M., Seattle, WA
I had used Seattle Tree Preservation for years. This was the first time for your company. Your crew was great. I am thinking of hiring you once a year to trim our trees.
Sandy L., Edmonds, WA
Everything went well. The quote was easily scheduled and provided in detail. The staff who accomplished the work were professional.
Toni L., Seattle, WA
We could not be happier with our experience with Bartlett. All of our encounters were easy and the crew was truly exceptional. We are so grateful to all of you.
Erin S., Seattle, WA
Every one was open about what they were doing and why. We understood what we could do ourselves and when we should do it. I will continue using Bartlett to care for our trees.
Wendy R., Seattle, WA
Professional, kind, helpful, and awesome.
Phil G., Seattle, WA
Cory Fitzpatrick is an ISA certified arborist, an ATCIA certified tree safety professional and the manager of Bartlett Tree Experts in Kenmore, WA. He identified "at risk" trees and his company has cared for our "urban forest" yard for the past three years. To maintain safety to the house and property, some tall firs needed to be removed. A few other trees were treated to maintain optimal health. Recently, Cory's company did a huge pruning job and under Cory's direction, his crew removed the "at risk" branches that were hanging over the side yard. Since we began working with Cory, every single job has been done with the utmost care and he will not remove or touch a tree if it does not need any work. Over time, he has earned our trust because he is highly knowledgeable, professional, and genuinely cares about the ongoing heath of the trees and plants in our yard.
D.N., Seattle, WA
All of my contacts with Bartlett Tree Experts, from the initial call, to Cory Fitzpatrick, to the work crew was very professional.
Nora H., Edmonds, WA
Cory Fitzpatrick always provided five star customer service. He has a depth of knowledge and is very trustworthy. His communication exceeds expectations with a quick response if you email or leave a message for him. Thanks for the great care you provide to your customers.
Jim C., Seattle, WA
Cory and the crew were very knowledgeable and gave us the time to educate us about tree issues we were not even aware of. Very helpful!.
Julie C., Seattle, WA
Cory was great, very knowledgeable, and helpful.
Joan G., Seattle, WA
Everyone on all the crews I have met in the three years I have been working with Bartlett have been professional and personable. Cory and Robert answered all my questions and explained what they can do, set up a plan to get it done, and the job quotes are always detailed and thorough. Sandi has also been incredibly friendly and helpful in scheduling, answering questions, taking payments. I love working with everyone at Bartlett.
Melanie F., Edmonds, WA
I have enjoyed all my interactions with my arborist and whichever Bartlett crew handled my projects as well as with the administrative staff. I have found everyone to be courteous and punctual. Cory has always been willing to share his knowledge and has provided advice. The crews have always been efficient in completing their work while being respectful of my property, which I greatly appreciate.
Nancy G., Seattle, WA
I was beyond happy with my interactions with Corey, Danny, and Travis. Corey got this together for us really efficiently, which was super helpful because I have limited ability to track stuff like this. Danny and Travis were a pleasure to meet. They were so kind to explain their work to my kids, who are their biggest fans.
Michi N., Seattle, WA
Trever and Tighe were on time, listened, and responded to our plans for a new fence. They also corrected some tree work that had been poorly done a few months ago by other Bartlett workers. We were most happy with their work. Cory is easy to work with, personable, and represents your company well.
Karen, Seattle, WA
Cory seemed to be extremely knowledgeable. I had questions for him and he never seemed rushed or irritated, and he was never pushy with what we should be doing about our trees. The same crew member has come out for six treatments over the last two years, I asked him a lot of questions as well, and he seemed very well informed. He was always conscientious about our dogs and the gate. I frequently encourage people to at least get a free consultation on their trees.
Karen O., Seattle, WA
We really appreciate the extra effort Cory and his team made to get our tree sprayed. Despite the fact that they already had a very tight schedule and the weather wasn’t being cooperative, they nevertheless managed to fit us in during an all-important window of time when the tree needed spraying. We continue to be impressed by the deep commitment and caring Cory and his team have for trees. They're the best!
Victoria S., Seattle, WA
Cory, our main man, is the best, well informed, great communicator, and responsive. All of my contacts with Bartlett have been positive and I have recommended the company to several neighbors.
Cheryl R., Seattle, WA
The arborist spent about one hour with me making recommendations about the proposed trimming of the trees and provided a good deal of information regarding tree care.
J. Van B., Normandy Park, WA
Cory Fitzpatrick has been really great, informative, patient, thoughtful, and responsive to all our questions. We followed his recommendations and our tired hedge has never looked better. Excellent! Couldn't be better!
Jim M., Seattle, WA
Arborist Cory is always quick to respond to my questions about care and maintenance of my trees and landscape. I trust his advice and know that my yard is in good hands.
Carol N., Seattle, WA
I have been very pleased with every encounter with every person from Bartlett. Sandi was very responsive and got an initial appointment quickly set up, als initiated a follow-up satisfaction-check call. Cory was thorough, courteous, and very helpful with recommendations during our yard walk-through as we determined what needed to be done immediately and a course of action to try to save a "sickly" section of the cedar hedge. I appreciate the way the estimate was written, each planting broken down to make it crystal clear what was going to be done and the cost. The crew arrived promptly and worked very hard, taking great care of all the other shrubs and working around my little challenge of a small koi pond feature backed up to that ginormous cedar hedge. I am very happy with the entire experience.
Melanie F., Edmonds, WA
Superior, across the board, from the first contact with the office to the very end of the project. The entire staff was prompt, knowledgeable, professional, and caring. They did a fantastic job. We couldn't be more thrilled.
Ann S., Seattle, WA
Everyone at Bartlett including receptionist Sandi, Arborist Cory, the guys working the chain saws, to the crew on the ground are courteous, professional, and respectful of our home and landscaping. We know we can trust and rely on them for excellent service.
Carol N., Seattle, WA
Cory Fitzpatrick was exceedingly courteous and helpful during our consultation, and then the three-person crew (the lead's name was Rob) who did the pruning work was also amazingly courteous and professional. We have had a lot of different people (contractors, roofing people, pest control, handymen, asbestos abatement, HVAC, etc.) come to our new house for various projects over the past couple of months and I can say that the folks from Bartlett were the best of all of them in terms of delivering on promises and doing quality work.
We look forward to working with Bartlett again. If the level of service stays this high, we will certainly be customers for years to come.
Kelly T., Seattle, WA
We really appreciate how focused, thoughtful, precise, and quality-minded Cory Fitzpatrick is. Outstanding! He really listens to our concerns. Yet we trust that his advice ultimately has our trees' best interests at heart. We are super happy to have this partnership with him in caring for our property.
V. Scarlett, Seattle, WA
I really appreciate Cory's help with our property. He is professional, honest, and extremely helpful! We have been exceptionally happy with every encounter and person we have communicated with! Fantastic company and I have passed this info along to landscape designer and neighbors!
K. Evered, Seattle, WA
Cory and the two guys who did the root invigoration and trimming were helpful and answered all my questions. They were polite, performed the work in a timely fashion, and cleaned up afterwards. Cory did research on phytopthora and got back to me with the best treatment approach. Everyone I spoke with is professional and is sincere about helping my tree become healthier to fight off the phytopthora and bronze birch beetle. I've had bad experiences with other tree companies where they were just wanting work to trim trees and bushes regardless of the health of the trees.
L. Strausz, Seattle, WA
Excellent all around; couldn't be more pleased. The firm that previously maintained the trees closed and I interviewed six firms before choosing Bartlett. I am very impressed by their professionalism, service, and fair price. Importantly, they have an office manager and their estimator answers e-mails promptly allowing firm communication. Their work was much better than their predecessor. I have extensive experience with trees, nonetheless they educated me on much I didn't know. I've recommended them to three people, two of whom have already used them and are very satisfied.
