    Possible but highly doubtful. Like myself, he does all his own work. He even trenched and laid the 1K' of underground cable for his cable TV when it became available years ago.

    My only real concern is whether or not I should confront said neighbor about the pin. If I choose to ignore what's been done, can it come back and bite me down the road? I can't see how, but given the way the legal system operates today??

    Here's a couple pics...one showing the corner where the pin was located on his side of the trees. The other pic shows the location of some of the trees versus the front of his house. They're located about 30' from his front door. He wasn't to happy about the placement, but given what had occurred causing me to plant them in the first place...he should have given more thought to the placement of his house when he built it. He owns 4.5 acres and easily could've built further back.

    If you're concerned about future legal ramifications, go talk to a lawyer that knows the law in YOUR AREA. We're just a bunch of armchair quarterbacks on here. You can do this without your neighbor knowing. That way, if its not an issue, you can just let it slide. You obviously don't want an ongoing dispute with your neighbor, since you said you took the effort to bury the hatchet before. No sense in rubbing salt in old wounds if there's no benefit.

I understand that neighborly peace can be a more important principle than the property line itself, so I'm not questioning your decision to let it slide, but I have also seen too many of these cases where a person's generosity with regard to property rights turned out to be his undoing. I hope that you don't become one of them.

    This^.
    I might call the surveyor who did the survey and see what it would cost to have him re-set the pin and then pound in a 4' T post next to the pin (inside your line) till its 4-6" underground... Hard to accidentally dig out something like that.
    As it sits, I would be surprised if there is a way to prove that it was him who dug it up and I wouldn't start something where the only winners will be the lawyers...

    Good point, but I somewhat disagree with the armchair Q'backs comment because I've seen some of you guys put up info that someone may not think about. There's been a number of threads involving property lines that prove it.

    First things First- don't make assumptions. You have no real way of determining who actually removed the marker.

    Sounds like you have all of the documentation from the surveyor. If it is really bugging you- contact the surveyor and "ask" him about the pin/ tell him you can't find it. He may be interested in the situation since he may have some vicarious liability.

    Otherwise, let sleeping dogs lie-
    I thank God everyday for all of the blessings he has given me- especially for the one's I do not recognize or see!

    You're absolutely correct...I have no proof just an assumption.

    But more importantly...instead of getting a lawyer involved at this stage (not that I believe I need one yet), I like the suggestion of contacting the surveyor about not finding the pin.
    Thanks!
