What Our Clients Say
Luke and his crew are very knowledgeable, helpful, and professional.
“Luke and his crew are very knowledgeable, helpful and professional. They are also personable and easy to work with. I am in the process of converting over thirty acres from brome to native prairie and restoring another ten acres to oak savanna. From prescribed burns to woodland management, Prudenterra has been really good at helping me with the planning and figuring out what is possible, and then getting the work done.”
Susan Peterson, Solon
Prudenterra conducted the mid-contract management for a prairie grass buffer strip in a safe and timely manner.
“As a farm manager, I consider conservation land to be another crop to manage, just like corn and soybeans. However, most farmers don’t have the specialized equipment or expertise to seed or burn it. I had been searching for a couple of years for someone to conduct a prescribed burn on a farm in central Iowa, and was glad to find Prudenterra. They conducted the mid-contract management for a prairie grass buffer strip in a safe and timely manner and I have continued to work with them to help seed and burn prairie on other farms I manage.”
Tim Pick, Nevada
Luke helped us sell the timber on our property at a much higher price.
“Luke was great to work with. He helped us sell timber on our property and got a much higher price than the bidders we’d been finding on our own. It was a relief to have someone else vetting the bidders for us! Luke gave us excellent advice in planning for our future goals for the woodland and we appreciated his lively and intelligent conversation.”
Amy Uthus and Kyle Eastwood, Knoxville
We have seen an increase in bird diversity and habitat use.
“Our backyard is connected to a city park and we wanted to increase the biodiversity. Working with Prudenterra, we developed achievable goals (both short and long term) to eliminate exotic species and enrich the forest structure. We have seen an increase in bird diversity and habitat use. The process was fun and the Prudenterra folks were easy to work with!”
Lori Biederman, Ames
It is outstanding how the understory wildflowers and native shrubs have taken off.
“Our oak savanna restoration has really increased the sunlight reaching the floor of our woodland and it is outstanding how the understory wildflowers and native shrubs have taken off. Prudenterra also helped us jump-start our prairie remnant restoration and did a beautiful job of identifying, lining up, and putting us in contact with buyers for the sale of our mature walnut trees. Luke always comes up with innovative ideas for environmentally sensitive projects and gets you to think about different ways to do things.”
Paul Lengeling, Collins
