Do you know the new Tennessee trespassing law. I have not found a TN sign you need to post, but here are two from other states.
HOUSE BILL 78
AN ACT to amend Tennessee Code Annotated, Title 39, Chapter 14, relative to trespass.
BE IT ENACTED BY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF TENNESSEE:
SECTION 1. Tennessee Code Annotated, Section 39-14-405, is amended by deleting subsection (c) and substituting the following:
(c) The defenses to prosecution set out in subsection (b) shall not be applicable to a person violating this section if the property owner:
(1) Posts the property with signs that are visible at all major points of ingress to the property being posted and the signs are reasonably likely to come to the attention of a person entering the property; or
(2) Places identifying purple paint marks on trees or posts on the property. If purple paint is used, then purple paint must be vertical lines of not less than eight inches (8") in length and not less than one inch (1") in width; placed so that the bottom of the mark is not less than three feet (3') or more than five feet (5') from the ground; and placed at locations that are reasonably likely to come to the attention of a person entering the property.
SECTION 2. This act shall take effect July 1, 2017, the public welfare requiring it.
