Planting Trees Over Underground Utilities
I'm looking to add another shade tree in my front yard to help block out mid-day sun. Unfortunately, there's underground electric/cable/phone lines in the only spot that would work. Researching online, there seems to be a lot of conflicting information about this.
FWIW, my neighbor's live oak appears to have been planted almost directly over the lines by the builder. Judging by the location in my yard and the neighbors, it looks like plenty of trees in the neighborhood are very near the lines as well.
