  • § 3834. Removal of surveying monuments

    A person who knowingly removes or alters monuments marking the boundary of lands or knowingly defaces, alters or removes marks upon any tree, post or stake which is a monument designating a point, course or line in the boundary of a parcel of land shall be fined $100.00 and shall be civilly liable for the replacement cost and any consequential damages.
