Fence post lifespan

Recommended Posts

So we all seem to have come to the same conclusion, fence posts are not lasting as long as we would like,

I like the idea of the robinia not to sure about the oak,

 

But going back to our standard round treated posts who makes the best posts in the country price not important quality is what I am after.

 

 

 

why don't you want oak then???

 

should last nearly as long as robinia.

I predict if the oak posts were dipped or painted with Tuffdip they would last for at least a couple centuries.
