Earth's Largest Land Surveyor Community
I'm putting together some resources that will be helpful to landowners and wanted to ask my fellow surveyors what you wish that ALL landowners knew about our profession, about their land, etc.
What else do you folks think a landowner should know?
As an incentive, I'll give a $25 Restaurant.Com food coupon to the 5 best answers.

I wish landowners knew:
That we don't have your property corners by lat / long,
That even if I did, it's give or take 30 feet in tree cover,
That we still operate by line of sight instruments (so help me out, and clear some brush)
That the corner marker is the corner marker. I'm not telling you where the corner "really" is, because once that rebar is in the ground, buddy - it's the corner. You don't find yourself talking to the board for accepting found monuments.
