How Far should I Plant Trees From Natural Gas Line?
I would like to plant an oak, sycamor and a horse chestnut tree around the perimiter of our property. The power company maintains a 10' easement around the perimiter of the property in which there is a natural gas line. I was wondering how many feet away should I plant these trees away from the underground line easement? I was thinking a few feet might be ok, but I do not want to harm the gas line or have to take the trees out in 5 years. I tried calling the power company, but the people I spoke to were unable to help me. What do you think?
