In terms of wood species, if you find yourself in accommodating parts of the world, black locust, cypress, ironwood, juniper and cedar are known for being rot resistant. I’ve used cedar (less costly than the alternatives) for multiple outdoor applications and have yet to see any issues. Oddly (for uneducated me, at least), rot resistant does not necessarily equal hard (wood). Cedar is very soft and can be easily marred with a fingernail while ironwood is… like iron.
