When it comes to arboriculture, the state of California is one of the most complex in the country, made up of countless micro-climates and a fascinating diversity of plants and trees. For that reason, the subtlety and nuances in the state demand an intimate knowledge of the landscape and how even the smallest change can cause adverse or beneficial effects. What Rappoport Development Consulting Services LLC and President Jeremy Rappoport bring to the table is a long history in California and the knowledge needed to be a true expert on the subject.
Mr. Rappoport earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Ornamental Horticulture from California State Polytechnic University, Pomona where he majored in horticulture with a landscape design and landscape contracting emphasis. This education was bolstered by real-world experience, including the founding of a full landscape-services provider, Landscape Horticultural Services, and work completed for The Baldwin Company, Continental Homes, D.R. Horton Homes, Starwood Santa Fe Valley Partners LLC, and K. Hovnanian Homes. Receiving promotions from several of these organizations, Mr. Rappoport was exposed to many different horticultural and arborist concerns, including the design and development of several large-scale master planned communities.
With a unique blend of true arboriculture expertise and the real-word experience of putting that knowledge into practice, Mr. Rappoport has become a thought leader and respected professional in horticulture and land development. In order to best use his talents, Rappoport opened the doors of RDCS LLC at a time when many developers were shutting down their operations. Moving more towards a role as professional consultant and expert witness, Rappoport understands that these functions are the optimal way to serve the greater community of California and his own professional development.
Currently, RDCS LLC works with a wide array of clients, including attorneys, commercial developers, insurance companies, and local government agencies. Based in San Diego, Rappoport provides services such as litigation support and professional consulting for many different arboriculture, landscape, horticulture, and land development needs. He currently holds a C-27 landscape contracting license (consultant only) and has also been acknowledged as a certified arborist and certified tree risk assessor. With such a large range of knowledge and experience, RDCS LLC is ready for any horticulture assignment.
