TCLF Announces 12 Landslide® Landscapes; Davey Tree Returns as Presenting Sponsor

DC's Pennsylvania Avenue and New York's Iconic Jones Beach lead Landslide® 2012

Posted: 10/11/12

The Cultural Landscape Foundation (TCLF) has formally announced the Landslide® 2012: Landscape and Patronage, of which The Davey Tree Expert Company is the presenting sponsor. In 2012, Landslide®, the annual thematic compendium of threatened and at-risk landscapes, focuses on visionary patrons and/or organizations and the sites they helped create and support.

The 2012 Landslide® sites include Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C. — the Nation’s Main Street — New York’s iconic Jones Beach, the Hannah Carter Japanese Garden in Los Angeles, and the Nasher Sculpture Garden in Dallas. For a complete list of Landslide sites, or for more information about TCLF, visit its web site at www.tclf.org.

A majority of the 2012 sites face the most preventable yet pernicious threat — lack of maintenance — while some could be partially or wholly eradicated. Landslide®, first issued in 2003, has highlighted more than 150 significant at-risk parks, gardens, horticultural features and working landscapes collectively — places that embody our shared landscape heritage.

“Each year ‘Landslide’ highlights different aspects of our landscape legacy to make that living heritage visible,” said Charles A. Birnbaum, TCLF founder and president. “In 2012 we focus on patrons and the places they helped create.  In the Nation’s Capital and around the country, patronage is intrinsic to the creation and stewardship of great designed landscapes.”

“Davey is proud to support and recognize notable landscapes and trees across the country. These spaces enhance our environment and provide us with numerous benefits that better our lives and communities every day,” said Sandra Reid, manager of Corporate Communications/Marketing at Davey Tree.
