Ten years? These great fence posts are only gonna last ten years? Am I missing something here? To me, it's just beyond belief that anyone would put this kind of time and effort into fence posts that are only going to last ten years. I'm literally sitting here shaking my head at this. Unbelievable.

That's about right unfortunately – I cut chestnut commercially and only oak will last longer, but naturally isn't as cost effective
