§19-17-3. Hedge fence.
All hedge fences along public roads, or division hedge
fences between farms or on any land or premises, shall be kept
trimmed so that their branches shall not extend into the public
road, or upon the lands of an adjoining owner, more than eighteen
inches over the dividing line. For failure to keep the hedge
fence so trimmed, after ten days' notice in writing by the county
engineer or supervisor of roads, or by parties owning the
adjoining land or premises, the owner shall be guilty of a
misdemeanor, and, upon conviction thereof, shall be fined not
exceeding one dollar for each day such fence shall remain
untrimmed after the ten days' notice expires.
