I am submitting a letter of support and recommendation for Julie Etra, Western Botanical Services, Reno, NV. As an employee of a local planning agency, I am not able to publicly do so, but as a private individual and business owner I do so. I have known Julie for many years as we worked together for the U.S. Forest Service in the Lake Tahoe Basin. I know Julie to be extremely professional in all aspects of her business dealings and highly competent in her technical knowledge of stream restoration and native plants. She has a long list of successful projects to her credit and is always eager and willing to explore innovative approaches to restoration and environmental improvement.
It has been and continues to be a pleasure to work with Julie!

We consider Julie Etra with Western Botanical Services a cutting edge specifier. She stays on top of new technology and is very passionate about the erosion control industry. I had the privilege of serving on the International Erosion Control Association board where she serves as the International Vice President. Kelley Erosion Control always appreciates when owners hire Julie to write the erosion control revegetation specifications because we know that they will be appropriate for the site and written by one of the best in our industry.
