Many remain unaware of this Trespassing Law in Texas, and several other States. Here's a brief reminder:

The Texas Law is HB 793, under Texas Penal Code 30.05, Criminal Trespass, section 1, subsection D.

 

The law requires the following regarding the use of purple paint:

Markings must be:

  • vertical
  • at least 8 inches long
  • at least 1 inch wide bottom of the mark should be between 3-5 feet above the ground.
  • Markings can be no more than 100 feet apart in timberland
  • Markings can be no more than 1,000 feet apart on open land,
  • They must be in a place visible by those approaching the property.

Trespassing is a Class B misdemeanor in Texas, unless the intruder is carrying a firearm, which is a Class A misdemeanor.

I'd heard this in the past (probably in the concealed handgun class) but thanks for the reminder!

They cover this in hunters education as well, but always good to get a reminder.

Good reminder.  I've met many cachers that had no idea the purple painted trees and posts indicated no trespassing.  You see a lot of it in East Texas.

When I read the title I see the != in programming terms as not equal. So, the thread title threw me off and gave me the opposite idea.

Next time I'll escape it as a literal string rather than an operator ;)
