Re: Finally Figured Out Where Bearings Come From

yeah i guess the gov't- BLM still uses these bearing trees to reference their survey monuments ie section and 1/4 corners. i have retraced many old original gov't surveys of 1885 to 1915 using the gov't plat and notes. they set the monument ie a stone or post and referenced it to nearby trees by blazing it and then measuring to it with a chain and an angle with compass or transite depending on the year. i have found a few trees- usually just a stump left which helped me find the corner monument. now if you could find a MONEY tree......[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
