§1‑488.  When timber may be cut.

In any action specified inG.S. 1‑487, when the judge finds as a fact that the contention of eitherparty is not in good faith and is not based upon evidence constituting a primafacie title, upon motion of the other party, who may satisfy the court of thebona fides of his contention and who may produce evidence showing a prima facietitle, the court may allow such party to cut the timber trees by giving bond asrequired by law. Nothing in this section affects the right of appeal, and whenany party to such action has been enjoined, a sufficient bond must be requiredto cover all damages that may accrue to the party enjoined by reason of theinjunction as now required by law. (1901, c. 666, ss. 2, 3;Rev., s. 809; C.S., s. 846.)
