Timber guys on public lands are usually required to use tracer paint for trees to be cut...it can be tested to verify it was marked by an authorized person. They are also supposed to store said paint under lock and key. But surprisingly enough,there is no industry wide color coding scheme.

Edit: Buckskin has been kind enough to PM me and let me know tracer paint is not used on SF/DCNR cuts. I was told it is used on National Forrest cuts by a young man who works for the USFS and assumed it was used on all public cutting.

Thanks for setting me straight Dave!

UV is the main enemy of the tyvek type, unless you are under the pines I don't think a tyvek type would last all that long in arizona. Arizona has been a paint state for a long time. Tyvek is fairly impervious to water, even salt water, and temperature. The tyvek signs are VERY durable if they are not in the sun.
The state decided it damages trees to pierce the cambium layer, loggers and mills know what happens when you hit a nail with a saw. But landowners haven't had any choices with this. Purple is becoming the US standard for no trespassing. A lot of companies specifically market purple no trespassing paint.

Below is a pic of one I replaced hanging by one nail in the upper right. I've got about 5400 feet that is under canopy and a lot of it is hemlock. If the sign was still attached at 4 corners I left it.

Where in the heck did that myth ever start? Or "the signs are to far apart so they arn't legal" or my personal favorite, "If you post your land you cant hunt on it either." Ill admit I have not heard that last one in years but its still a hoot.

Well, I'd tell the trespasser "What I'm about to do to you isn't exactly legal either".

Dedicated ones will just carry a can of gray paint to spray over it.

When we used to post on our road front property I,d stand on the top of my 18.4-38" tires on my tractor.

Couldn't you just go to your local hardware store and have them mix up a gallon of purple latex paint?

Would probably cost less than half that price.



I was thinking the same.

I like the concept of the idea too of marking your boundary trees. I would also consider using both paint and signs and even going with a much longer lasting oil based paint rather than latex that would wear off quickly.
Just my 2 cents.

Suppose putting actual "brands" of paint in this legislation to meet requirements served a purpose, but whatever is used will eventually fade if in the sun most of the day. Rough barked trees will soak up more paint, than smooth barked trees, for another thing to consider.

And that requirement such stripes be three to five feet from the ground, really seems a bad move? Banner year for goldenrod up north last summer. Plenty of it around my place that's beyond five feet. Some legislation is so vaguely worded as to be nearly useless, this one went overboard. But hey, "standards are standards" and without them, laws are more open to interpretation by those seeking to claim ignorance?

Picked up a couple cans of purple Rust-Oleum at Ollie's this fall. Will get a few more as they become available, for $2 a spray can.Purple enough to suit me and am also keeping signs along the road frontage. Don't really care if neighbors cross lines, it's the road hunters that caused signs to go up in the first place.
