Based in the Charlotte metro area, HARP's botanists, biologists and scientists can accommodate clients needs with small individual projects or large complex projects. HARP has gained a strong reputation across the region, and is recognized by many regulatory agencies as a provider of high quality consulting and other services. Dr. Jim Matthews founded Habitat Assessment and Restoration Program (HARP) in partnership with Dr. Larry Mellichamp in the mid 1990's. As early as the 1960's, Dr. Jim Matthews and Dr. Mellichamp started surveying natural areas across North Carolina in search of rare and unusual plant species and plant communities. Since its inception, HARP has evolved into one of the Southeast's most trusted environmental firms. From those early beginnings, HARP has grown steadily and today performs a wide variety of consulting and restoration services throughout the Southeastern United States and beyond, including design-build services for stream and wetland restoration, bio-engineering, 404/401 water quality permitting, wetland and stream delineation, threatened and endangered species surveys, site inspection, restoration planting, invasive plant species management as well as a host of other environmentally-based services.
