I see the chainsaw between the Volvo and the Tak now in the pic. I thought they were talking about something in the vid on youtube not the pics here.

Finally got time to finish up the last pond I built and install the posts for the dock. Yes I overkilled on the post but I know at one point there could be 20- 25 people on this dock with alot of kids, dont want to risk it falling over.


and It was just in time as the pond already got about 6' of water in it!

Dirtman, it's supposed to be in the 60's next week almost 70. Back to normal I hope, that cold weather can go back up north and stay until next winter.

That dude has got some eyes! I see the saw now but only because i knew it was there.

Little bit of info: Cutting the buried end of treated posts accelerates the degradation of the post. Even cutting the top of fresh posts in exposed applications can lead to rotting.

Stihl. Bleah.

HVY, I didn't know that. Is it because you're cutting off the treated part, leaving an untreated area exposed?

and my little bit of info: Buried 4' in mud under water rapidly slows the process of rotting. Im covered! lol

Use a torch and char the ends of the wood that meet water and mud, nature's preservation, that's what we do for fence posts here.

Wood needs oxygen to rot. It is much harder for it to absorb the oxygen from being underwater than exposed to open air. Sun is the worst for wood, it dries it out and allows the water to infiltrate the grain, causing the rot. So Chris is right, being under water and mud will actually slow the decomposition. The bottom of the posts that are underwater will likely outlast the rest of the pier anyway, so there is much to be concerned about. It would be more important to seal the top of the posts especially if they are cut...
