Billboarding is one form of ecotage in the form of monkeywrenching. It is the act of cutting down, burning, and/or defacing highway billboards. The American novelist Edward Abbey seems to have[vague] greatly advanced (if not out-right advocated) the art of billboarding starting around the year 1950 in and around the New Mexico city of Albuquerque[citation needed]. Billboarders consider billboarding an art form as well as an ethical, moral, and justified act[citation needed].

Billboarding takes a minor role in the Abbey novel The Monkey Wrench Gang.
