Wood post rot starts at the base of the post - at the grade because of soil to wood contact. Microbes, moisture and fungus cause wood rot. Rot needs four elements to start and survive. It cannot spread if it never starts. There is not enough oxygen a few inches below the ground or fuel for rot to exist. The posts rot where they exit the earth (soil), moisture and the elements cause the decay. The base of the post must be protected form soil. Most home owners have observed this over the years, and all fence contractors know this fact. The fence posts rot and snap off right at ground level, or just below the ground, where the rot has spread. Under ground the post still remains intact. The fence boards that are not in contact with the soil most of the time are still in good shape and have many years of life left in them. You shouldn't have to replace an entire fence because the fence posts rot!
