Tree professionals should, by definition, act or restrain themselves from
acting in any way or in any context or future context that compromises or
will compromise the welfare of the tree, throughout the natural life of the
tree.

Are there regulations (or guidance) for lateral clearances required (or
advised) for tree planting over or near underground electric cables?
NJUG discusses the depth at which services should be set but it is
largely guidance for installing services near trees, not planting trees
near services.
Is there any reason or justification for prohibiting planting in a wide
verge because there are a couple of cables?
(I take for granted that precautions need to be taken to avoid direct
damage to cable, although I'm only talking about hand planting - no
mini-diggers or tree spades involved.)
