Okay so I'm pretty sure our neighbors wont be reading this blog but if they do i apologize for using your tree in my experiment :). Not you Heather and Sherman but the other neighbors LOL. So i tried this for a month. I have to note that these neighbors have keep up their yard very well and they have people come in every week to tend it. My yard on the other hand, yea... i wish i had the money to hire people to tend it. Thats not why i chose their yard LOL. I chose it cause these two trees are right at the end of my driveway (one of each side) so i figured they'd be exposed to the same amount of wind, sun, rain, etc.
So check out these pictures below. I'm no scientist but coincidence? Maybe. Still i think i did a real good job and being mean to one and nice to the other hahaha. Baby talk to the one and bad talking the other. Crazy results.
So i guess sticks and stone break bones and words can leave bruises.
