Painting Property Lines – Part Two

March 11, 2015

Time to get in the woods and start painting. The assumption here is that your property lines have been painted in the past. 

 

1. Scrape the bark so the paint will stick better and last longer. Here I am using a machete to scrape the bark. You don’t want to scrape through the bark to raw wood when doing this. Just take off the loose bark and smooth up what you can. How nice a scraping job you can do will depend on the tree species. Make sure to keep your fingers out of the way while scraping.

 

2. Paint a nice neat band around the tree facing the property line. On larger trees the band needs to extend a good way around the tree so the paint is easily visible.

3. Step back, admire your work, and move on to the next tree.

This process works well with two people, one scraping and one painting.
