You can get pre made panels built as you described.. My neighbors put
them up and so far they have lasted 24 years with zero maintenance. No
staining, painting, cleaning or anything. Admittedly they could be in
a lot better shape but I figure for the lack of care the fence has had
it has held up well. Some of the boards had bad knots and have broken
some of the boards have curled but even after 24 years I dont think it
would take more than a day or two to clean stain and repair the 200
ft fence. I dont know what the current price is but when they were
first built I noticed that you couldnt buy the wood for the cost of
the panels. Just something to consider.

Is your neighbor all right with your fence? Even if you have a legal
right, I'd try to keep him happy. You know him better than I do**,
but now might end up being the time to take credit for cutting odwn
those trees of his. (Assuming he was all right with thataaa.
Otherwise you can tell him that beavers did it.)
You should probably show him the property markers, in case years from
now they've gotten buried somehow. Maybe get some acknowledgement
from him that the fence is in the right place, in case he sells the
place, but I don't know how to do complicated thigns like that.
I heard from a surveyor that the property markers are ends of bar,
something like rebar, hammered was it 2 or 4 feet into the ground, and
they do or used to have a plastic cap with surveyor's id on it or in
it. Is that right?
I live in a townhouse and maybe there are none between me and my
neighbors, but I also live on the corner of it, so maybe there should
be one delimiting the entire parcel, but with a cheap metal detector,
that found other things, I coudlnt' find it. Although maybe the
parcel extends beyond the land we use for yards and common area into a
wild area we don't use.
