Ok my property has been surveyed but the only markers used were metal corner stakes and orange ribbons. Is there a certain color paint to use to mark the borders or no? Thanks

We used the bright orange spray paint to mark the trees on the boundary line. I am not sure if there a specific color required by law to use to mark your property line.

in engineering, we use three strips of orange tape(flagging) to mark corners...for most folks that signifies a corner...for line boundaries when mark at 100ft intervals with blue tape (for you, you could go from sapling to sapling or whatever you've got) maybe even drive you up some metal T-posts (fencing) if you can afford them nowadays...I remember when they were a buck a piece

I thing you can use about any color to mark your line. A lot of people use red. Isn't there a law in TN that if the boundry is marked with royal blue paint, it is the same as having it posted with NO TRESPASSING signs?

I've never heard that before and that sounds very interesting but I just wonder is it me that didn't know that or lots of others, especially the ones that would cross someone's line....interesting,hmmm...I'll ask an old surveyor buddy of mine.

State boundary lines are indicated by a 2-3 inch blue strip of spray paint. Private property you can use whatever color you want. However, remember that no matter what you use it's not much use unless the land is properly posted with signs. Paint is simply applied to indcate a boundary. If you are going to boundary mark it I would recommend blue because most people are familiar with the meaning of that color, and if you ever have your land select or clear cut you don't want your loggers to get confused.

I use yellow on my place in GA. I take a machete and hack out just a little square and paint it blue with heavy latex paint. Then come back and post it with high quality aluminum signs which I screw into the trees with aluminum screws.

I have some 4-wheeler trails crossing my property in AL. I am afraid a singe wire might decapitate someone driving through in low light.
