I agree with you on that sHan. I also have some oak post that I remember Granddad put in and he has been gone almost forty years. They where not treated. I have torn out fence that had hedge post that the older folks said was sixty plus years old. These post where three to four inches in diamenter and I wondered why they used such small post when I started pulling them they where six inches or more in diamenter. I have found this in some oak fence post that I have taken out also. Apparently the wood last longer in the ground than exposed to to the elements. I wonder if that is something that happens just around here. Untreated pine will not last in the ground any time at all around here anyway. But pine does not grow here. Would that be why it does not last would it last longer in the area where it grows?
