(a) All primary monuments must be referenced to at least three bearing trees or objects surveyed to a Class IV survey standard, or two reference monuments surveyed to a Class III survey standard.

(1) If bearing trees or objects are used, they must be located as nearly as possible at equal angles, and may not be farther away than 100 feet from the monument. Reference monuments must be used if no suitable object exists within 100 feet. The distance to trees or objects must be measured at waist height, and in the case of trees, measured to the center of the tree, with distances reduced to a horizontal equivalent. Bearing trees must be marked with nonferrous metal tags of at least nine square inches in size, which must be placed facing the monument. These tags must be clearly and permanently marked as to the corner nomenclature and distance.

(2) If reference monuments are necessary, two must be used, and they must meet the secondary monument standards of sec. 190(b) of this chapter. These monuments must be placed on a property line or at right angles to the monument being referenced and may not be farther than 100 feet from the monument being referenced. In addition, they must be marked with the nomenclature and distance to the monument being referenced.

(b) In addition to the accessories required in (a) of this section, witness posts, a minimum size of a nominal two-by-four, six feet long, with four feet protruding above ground, are required for all primary monuments. They must be set at right angles to the line and no farther than one foot from the monument.
