14 Things Every U.S. Homeowner Should Do Once a Year

Monitor Trees and Landscaping

Harsh winters can weaken trees and cause them to break. “It’s always good to monitor the positioning of your trees so you can look out for any changes, like are they leaning in a certain direction?” Gesuelli says. “Check the roots too if there are cracks in the surrounding earth, as the root may have become dislodged.”

If trees hang over your house, Gesuelli suggests checking for broken or loose branches because they can damage the house if they fall. If this is the case, hire a pro to do the trimming for you to avoid unnecessary safety risks.
