Which is better for a fence, Cedar or Pine?

Cedar is typically a less-maintenance, more robust, and longer-lasting option than pine for fencing. The natural oils in cedar wood can prevent warping, rotting, and shrinking without requiring much upkeep, in addition to thwarting insect attacks. On the other hand, pine wood needs to be pressure treated, cleaned annually, and regularly sealed, repainted, or re-stained. Despite this, some people choose pressure-treated pine for the actual fence posts and cedar for the fence panels because treated pine has a higher resistance to soil.
