Intriguing subject. I recently spent several days hiking across Exmoor Park in Somerset, Southwest England. From a surveyor's standpoint I was keeping an eye out for any evidence of property corners and saw none, but what I did see just about everywhere I went were ancient stone walls around nearly every field, paddock and lane, built eons ago and filled with earth and trees planted in them and tended to form hedges. I'd say those walls/lines/hedges were on average 2 meters in width and 1-2 meter high, so there you go.
New York changed the adverse possession laws 11 years ago, so affidavits and licences are used to clear up issues like fences and sheds. https://prfamerica.org/2014/ChangesInNewYorksAdversePossessionLaw.html
