I have a 6-foot-high fence that is about two years old. It was built with CCA-treated lumber, including 6x6 posts, 2x4 cross members, and 1x4 fencing boards. My problem is with the posts. They're about 8 feet on center, and all of them have started to twist. The ones that get the most sun are twisting the worst.
Fence posts may lean over time if they aren't installed properly or if there are erosion issues in the area. The simplest fix for a slanting fence post is to pull it back into place and stabilize it.
- Attach a rope to the stake and run it to the fence to pull the fence back toward vertical. Over-pull it a little bit, we're anticipating some springback when we're done. You can use a come-along, ratchet straps, or tie a weight to the middle of the rope - whatever you want to make the rope keep tension on the fence.
But a beefed-up post is only as good as the hole it's in. Just as with any structure, fence posts, and especially the gatepost, need to have a solid foundation.

Now using a strong cableing device tighten the two posts AROUND the warped one until you begin to see it strhten. Then using large heavy duty wood screws, tighten to secure and let the warped post set and dry for several days. Another trick is to make a small indiscreet saw cut in the warped area to help the process along.
