The Forest Service initiated a Land Line Location Program in F.Y. 1959 to locate and maintain the corners and lines of the properties it administers, and to reestablish missing corners. Inventory has revealed that one-third of the corners are already missing and that 10,000 additional per year are lost due to age, cultural and construction activities, and lack of maintenance. A report of ten years of work on the program shows that accomplishment is highly significant in saving "thread-hanging" corners, in resolving claims, and in developing better neighborly relations. However, much work is ahead.
