The new year is here. How about making some promises and commitments to your trees and landscape?A man in a blue shirt and women in a white shirt walk through grass and trees

What many people don’t realize is that our trees, in some ways, have feelings and emotions. They know when they are being neglected or need a good pruning or some extra TLC. Paying a bit more attention to them can make a world of a difference for your landscape.

Here are five resolutions you can make to keep your yard healthy and looking good:

• Keep notes

Make physical notes of the current condition of your trees and vow to keep the notes updated. Walk to property with a pen and paper or your phone and examine every tree -- give the tree a nickname or a number that makes sense to you and write down if anything seems off or wrong it, including the color of its leaves, how sturdy is it or whether the bark is attached or falling off. This creates a great starting place for you and your arborist to keep track of how your trees are progressing throughout the year.
