Anderson Underground crewmembers digging trench


Trenching is the go-to method when ground conditions become difficult or the product is too large to plow. Dependent on the situation, a backhoe or rock saw may be needed to cut a trench where the cable or pipe will be placed. Anderson Underground has all the equipment necessary to complete projects in even the toughest soil.
