Strawberry guava for fence posts?

Wondering if anyone has tried using strawberry guava as fence posts, and if so what the lifespan of such posts would be in a rainy climate...lowland windward Maui.

Also wondering if strawberry guava was used as living fence posts with hog wire attached, if the trees grow from the top or if the trunks would life the hogwire off the ground?

strawberry guava has a semi-hardwood. so the post would last at least a year or two. Yes! if the strawberry guava becomes a tree it will lit the hogwire off the ground but with prunning you maybe can control the grown of the trees.
