Question:
Will a 4"x4" pressure treated post last longer than a 4"x4" white cedar post?  I am installing a white cedar fence.

Applicable Products:
Wood Fence.

Reply:
If cedar is cemented, it will rot. Also cedar has a tendency to rot quicker than treated wood when it touches the ground. Most wooden fences should be cemented with treated posts.
