I’m not aware of any special legal rights that the CDF has to do that sort of thing, unless they had some rights to your property prior to the time you purchased it. This is a question that requires some factual research, and the quickest way might be to call the CDF directly and ask. There may be a valid reason that they have the authority to do this, but if not you want to get this easement removed as soon as possible.
