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. Planning and service areas include forestry, prairies, wetlands, agroecology, and stream restoration.

Our recommendations and enhancements are based on landowner objectives, which often include:

  • Restore native prairie, oak savanna, wetlands, and woodlands
  • Support clean water and air
  • Generate value from land, beyond crops
  • Improve soil and crop health


Luke is a Certified Forester with the Society of American Foresters, and a certified Technical Service Provider (TSP) with the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS). Prudenterra’s Forest Management Plans, Pollinator Habitat Plans, and Prescribed Burn Plans are eligible for EQIP funding. Many other services we provide are also eligible for financial assistance.
