Cedar Fence Post: Cedar is naturally highly resistant to rot, decay, warping and bugs when used above ground. If it is saturated with moisture when installed in the hole with concrete around it and dries out, it will shrink leaving a void that will take on water. This creates a premature rotting process. This can also happen at the ground level if the concrete is not poured to a level that will help repel the water away from the fence post. You can use a good weather treatment to soak the post end prior to installing to extend the like of a cedar fence post. I have used Behr and Olympic with good success.
Wood Fence If you have a very limited budget, dont care how your fence looks and dont mind replacing it down the road, which is a pretty short road, go ahead and purchase the wood fence. However, dont forget about the detours in your journey of sanding, painting and staining with the choice of a wood fence.
