Use a scale/ruler to measure the height of a tree

Make a clearly visible mark on the tree trunk at a fixed, measured height above ground level—say, four feet, or six feet. Hold a ruler in front of you and step backwards until the one inch measure on the ruler matches the distance from the ground to the mark on the trunk. Notice how many inches on the ruler match the entire height of the tree. The height of the tree is then the number of inches multiplied by the height in feet of the mark.See More

Survey Pincushion Effect

Every so often we will find a property corner that is monumented multiple times.  This is often referred to as a “pincushion” corner.  Property law and the law of boundaries demand that an existing monument that was originally set in order to represent a property corner be honored by all following land surveyors. By this definition, a land surveyor is either an original surveyor who is establishing new boundary lines and setting corners for the very first time, or the land surveyor is doing a…See More

Caveat emptor! Translation: Let the buyer beware! Under this doctrine, the buyer could not recover from the seller defects on the property that would render the property unfit for ordinary purposes.

The purchase of an automobile is typically the second most expensive purchase that people make. Prior to shelling out their hard-earned money though,…

What is Land Surveying, a Land Survey, or a Surveyor? Part 3

Posted on December 8, 2011 at 10:58pm 1 Comment

So last time we did a cursory review of the PLSS and went over the basics of simple legal descriptions.  We start the survey process at the office looking up the original surveys for the area, I’m a history buff so I love reading the original notes, and looking at the original maps. Then we head to the courthouse to research deeds for not just the parcel of land that we…
