Boundary Line Locations and Maintenance" without being a licensed Surveyor
Blog Home All Blogs
I was wondering what NSPS and the surveying community's stance is on foresters and forestry companies who perform "Boundary Line Locations and Maintenance" without being a licensed surveyor or having one on staff. This seems to be a common and accepted practice in all states. The forester will read deeds, look for existing corner monumentation, locate it, make a boundary line determination and then mark the boundary line. I don't see how this isn't construed as surveying without a license. I believe NSPS and all of the other state associations should try and educate the forestry community on the importance of having a licensed surveyor determine and mark the boundary before the forester "maintains" or logs up to the property line.

As you will see in the below link, almost every forester here advertises that they perform boundary line locations, determinations, marking, and/or maintenance.
