Meet The Team

Kelly Long

Founder CEO

Kelly Long’s passion for the beatification in land management began at the age of 16. He worked for Tree’s Inc during and after high school and loved his experience. At the age of 21, he joined the Air Force. That adventure took him to various locations around the world including Germany, Iceland, Guam, Finland, the Middle East, and all over the United States. The military gave him an invaluable knowledge of patriotism, hard work, leadership, commitment, and teamwork. While loving his military experience, Kelly kept his tree trimming/removal skills sharp by continuing services part time.

In 2008, Kelly married his jr. high school sweetheart Mollie and together they grew their family with the birth of their son Cooper and later adopted their daughter Grace. Upon completion of his active-duty enlistment, he made the switch to The Air National Guard. In 2015, Kelly joined Spokane County Fire District 4 as a volunteer Firefighter/EMT and is on the Washington Air National Guard fire team where he deploys on state fire mobilizations. During these experiences, he developed a knowledge and passion for wild land firefighting, the need for fire safety and most importantly, prevention.

Kelly is forever grateful for his military experience but as he approaches retirement, he is happy to be back full time to owning and operating Patriot Land Management LLC. He holds true to his Air Force core values of Integrity First, Service Before Self and Excellence in all he does. Kelly is a family man who loves serving his community and looks forward to assisting property owners in making their land more usable, beautiful, and safe.
