SharePoint 2013, how can I stop task titles from overlapping on a timeline webpart?

I have a project management site that has a timeline.  However, some of the dates/tasks are very close to eachother and when displayed on the timeline the verbiage overlaps eachother.  I'm surprised that they don't stagger or something like that.   Without having to strategically figure out which tasks to remove from the timeline, is there a way to show all the tasks without them overlapping?   I have included an image to show what is happening.

Have you tried to remove tasks from the timeline entirely, without removing them from the task list. This can be helpful if you need to simplify the timeline, or if you would prefer that some tasks didn’t show up in the Project Summary web part.

There are two ways to remove a task from the timeline:

1.
2.

Thank you for your suggestion.  I did think of doing that except that I wanted both tasks to show on the timeline.  What I ended up doing was making one of the tasks a 'subtask'.  Subtasks appear below the task on the timeline, which makes sense I guess.   This allowed me to have two tasks that are close in date, appear nicely staggered on the timeline.

In order to have all tasks remain on he timeline without overlapping, making some of them sub tasks was the only 'non code' way of accomplishing this.
