Neighbor has proposed cell tower right across property boundry

by Bob
(South Carolina)

I just found out that the owner of 120 vacant farm acres next to me had a Surveyor out to stake a cell tower location 100 feet from my adjoining property line. It will be literally a 2 to 3 hundred feet from my door.
I am very concerned over the immediate impact this tower will have on my property value. Research I have done states a very real 15 to 30% reduced value of my homestead, currently on 8 acres.
When there is 120 acres to choose from, why would Verizon want to select the worst possible location for an adjoining property owner?
As we are in a rural location and I will be the only negatively impacted property owner I don't have the county or a homeowners association that would fight this.
Do you have any information, precedents, advice or any input I could use as a recourse before this goes too far?

I have contacted the County, have the Ordinances for tower permits but seems there is little to protect my property rights. I have called the land owner to discuss this and all he would say is " its the site they picked". I was very cordial but he just ended up hanging up the phone. He has at least 1000 acres in this county and is well known. I on the other hand have lived here for only 10 years and have no clout anywhere.

Any response would be appreciated.

Native American Artifacts, or toxic substances delivered via potato cannon

I have heard rumors that I can't confirm or deny of what others may or may not have done in a similar situation.

We are not suggesting that you or a surrogate launch several dozen historical arrowheads onto the staked out portion of the property with a slingshot or other device, like an infused potato cannon. We are not suggesting that someone leave old rusty gas containers there in the middle of the night.

Lots of farmers have trail cams, and high powered rifles and could easily catch somebody trespassing but with advances in drone technology it may be possible.
