load on a 4x4 post
 
4 x 4 redwood posts buried in dirt 2.5', 5.5' set above ground and are set at 8' apart with a playhouse built on top. How much weight can those 4x4 posts hold?

How strong is the soil the post is bearing on? The post capacity is only one factor that can be reuced by the length/height, but if you are building on some clay or muck, that could determine the maximum load.
