That's  why we put the tops a foot below the surface. Saw everything off and 
cover  it up. It'll be great until some one want's to dig a hole there.  <:-))

.a good idea that is not a good idea.  Here in Florida I have seen the  
results of doing just that.  The tower begins to rust and rot and after  some 
years, no one in their right mind would climb it.  All you guys who  are thinking 
about putting up a tower for the first time and are considering  this as a 
wife-pleaser, don't do it.  It is an accident waiting to  happen.
