Many people think that planting or removing trees is simple. Dig a hole for the tree, or pull the stump out and yank it.
But there’s so much more beneath the surface than most people realize.
You can turn on the light switch, turn on the stove top burner or make a phone call (if your rotary phone still has an archaic landline attached), but those services are most likely provided by underground cables and pipes.
You don’t need much to cut those services with a shovel. The results can be devastating – shockingly so.
Before you ride on top of a mushroom cloud created by a natural gas blast and wear angel wings, contact your local utility companies so that they can mark the area where you are working. It will be a great gift for your family and friends.
