Hedge Fence Posts

Another chore accomplished in our short span of warm weather was removing a short section of old barbed wire fence. It no longer was needed and had become an eye sore.  The hedge posts were interspersed with steel fence posts and the barbed wire was barely strung
I thought it would be a piece of cake to get the hedge posts out.  The above ground part of them were thin and spindly looking. I did not realize those old posts were like a iceberg.  The upper part of the posts had been worn down by the elements and fire.  Under ground they were like new and deep.

Here is another picture--so much better.
We estimate the posts have been in the ground at least fifty years.  Hedge is amazing wood.

Yes, Doug, it's looking north on Stubbs.
