Each year HARP restores hundreds of thousands of trees, shrubs and plants on stream, wetland and reforestation restoration sites across the Carolinas, Virginia and surrounding states. HARP's vast botanical knowledge and intimate knowledge of hydrology and restoration design, allows accurate installation of native plants into habitats that present themselves after alterations to landscapes. Often stream and wetland restoration designs reveal a different hydrologic condition than was intended. HARP's vast experience with plants and the proper setting for individual species ensures the correct location within landscape.
