replace old deck posts


I just bought a house with the deck attached to it, the fence around it is too low, I will have to replace the posts, but they are attached with both nails and screws, how do I remove them without damaging the joists?

There is a tool designed for pulling nails, but if you are going to replace the posts, cut them off immediately above and below the joists and then split whats left of the post with a hammer and chisel!
