  1. when considering which timber to use for main posts for a garden fence. 100x100x 2400mm post to be concreted into the ground....and will have to take full force of the wind due to exposed site. I've got one sawmill telling me good quality (heartwood) larch (non treated) is more durable than treated timber. Another sawmill tells me they would never put bare larch in the ground, and only the usual treated timber available in most merchants. I know of an increasing amount of fences where the treated timber used is rotting in or around 10 years. Modern treated timber is perhaps poorer quality than it used to be? Any experienced opinions out there? cheers Adrian
