Prudenterra empowers Iowa landowners to strategically restore thriving, profitable perennials and maintain them for generations.

We work with ecosystems to build a legacy of stewardship and return on investment through Agroecosystem Planning, Forestry, and Prairie, Wetland, and Streambank Restoration services.

Prudenterra’s recommendations and enhancements are based on landowner objectives, which often include:

  • Restore native prairie, oak savanna, wetlands, or forest
  • Generate income from non-agricultural land
  • Improve soil and crop health
  • Incorporate more trees, shrubs, and other perennials into the landscape
  • Revive water quality in the watershed
