If you are going to be planting a tree, or digging holes for a fence or anything that involves digging below a foot.  Call 811 before you do so they can mark your site.  Allow for up to 48 hours for them to come to the location to mark the site (you don't have to be present) with flags and paint where cable, water or gas lines are.  If you damage a line you can be held responsible.
