After reading the blog post can anyone thing of reasons why this will work and or why it wont? As this is an experimental design. I will keep you updated on the blog on how it actually works out. However if anyone has any tips I would love to use them to prevent or to make the cellar better. Thank you.

Burying certain kinds of wood in certain kinds of soil/moisture environments would result in the wood rotting away almost completely in a year.

In other circumstances, buried wood of rot resistance species, in soil that's not too wet could survive well for 50-100 years.  It all depends on the details.
