I am well aware of what the OP said and his naievity but ignorance of the law is no defence

What type of fence is it, fences are seldom so thick that preservative applied on one side doesn't penetrate, at least partially, to the other side. Spray or brush application are both suitable, depending on the circumstances.

You would have a well treated fence and he would have no more staining.
It would cost a lot less than a new fence, and keep the neighbour happy.

There is no way the OPs actions could result in paying for, or actually replacing the fence.

The OPs actions, which were carried out innocently, without malice and with the best of intentions are being grossly maligned with accusations of events that simply didn't happen.

There was nothing done to the fence that would shorten its life, so there can be no damage, at the very worst, it has been defaced.

I agree. Offer a bottle of wine perhaps, or to re-treat the fence in a manner which the neighbour prefers. A pressure-washer will easily take off most of the visible surface effect, and after drying it can be treated, stained or left au naturale.

Spray applicators are perfectly OK, if sensible care is taken re overspray.
