NOLO, a legal publisher, has a useful webpage covering neighborhood property disputes including boundary fences.

You will note that that article refers so a provision of the ORS 96.020. Chapter 96 of the Oregon Revised Statutes is in fact called "Line and Partition Fences" you can read this statutory chapter of the Oregon Legislature's website here.

or directly to the Chapter here:

The SOLL provides free access to NOLO books through EBSCO. The NOLO book Neighbor Law in chapter 11 discusses fences and gives some practical advice on resolving these disputes.
