Protecting & Supporting Conservation Efforts
Plateau has been so good to us and truly interested in protecting and supporting our conservation efforts. Their entire staff is knowledgeable and professional and we would encourage anyone in need of land and wildlife management services to use Plateau.
Easy Appraisal District Approval
Plateau knows and understands the requirements of Wildlife Management Valuation, including the particular approach of our county appraisal office. They worked with us to assemble the supporting documentation and filed our application on time. We were approved without any problems and could not have been more pleased with the service we received.
Last year we decided to get control of the cactus overtaking our property and after some research chose Plateau Wildlife Management. Our initial contact was Steve Parker and he was very responsive to our request for assessment of our property and treatment options. He and another guy came out for two days to treat cactus. Now over a year later we called him because we wanted him to check some of the treated areas that still had cactus. Again, Steve was quick to come out to walk the areas with me; he was accommodating to our concerns and came out several days later to retreat. Both times Steve was customer focused and kept us informed of any schedule changes, the treatment route on our property, and which areas would not be treated due to proximity to valued trees. The service we received from Plateau, through Steve Parker, was impressive and we would not hesitate to recommend your services and plan to use the cactus treatment next year on other areas. Thank you to Steve and his team for a successful experience and some cactus free property.
One Stop Shopping
I have worked with Plateau Wildlife for years on several ranches, not only with habitat and livestock management but also with respect to property tax classification, documentation and tax filing. My experience is that their technical knowledge is deep, their referral sources are reliable, and their service is personal and professional. In one instance regarding tax classification, the information I received from a county appraisal office was inconsistent with Texas constitutional law, and they were unwilling to discuss their position. I engaged Plateau to represent my family’s property to the appraisal office. After proper application of the law, completion of all forms, and communicating with the tax appraisal office, Plateau prevailed against the incorrect and damaging assessment and saved my family tens of thousands of dollars in tax. Shane Kiefer and Team are terrific. One stop shopping for landowners.
A First Class Organization
We have been working with Plateau Wildlife Management for over seven years and consider them to be a first-class organization. Their entire staff is knowledgeable and always willing to help whether it is from an educational standpoint or boots on the ground. They honor their commitments and take pride in what we accomplish together on the property. We definitely feel that our ranch and more importantly our wildlife, have benefited greatly from our relationship with our Plateau Biologist, Shane Kiefer, and the Plateau team. We plan to continue our partnership for years to come.
The plan looks really, really good. Very professional. I wasn’t expecting this level of detail… but as I sat in my easy chair last night, I saw that it was really easy to follow.
A Seamless Experience
Plateau made the Wildlife Management & Tax Exemption process seamless for our projects. A customized program was tailored to our particular needs. All personnel was professional, courteous and responsive. I look forward to working with Plateau in the future.
