What are non-toxic methods for treating or encasing cedar fence posts to extend their useful life?
Alternatively, is there a wood more durable than cedar that might be available in Vermont (e.g., black locust)?
We are about to re-build a backyard fence that will run near an organic garden. We’d like to find an alternative to pressure-treated fence posts (where chemicals seep into the soil) or untreated cedar posts that rot in the ground.
