Why paint/stain a cedar fence?

Curtis asked 4 years ago

I just read the info on painting or staining a fence. My question is: Why, if the fence is cedar? Before moving to MN from MA, I had a cedar fence around my outside pool. I never treated it. Left it alone! When I sold the house, it looked still looked great after 17 years. Why stain/paint/varnish?
