Put a roof over this bench today to keep my pines and some junipers from getting too wet over winter .

Looks great!

Is it attached to the concrete fence posts? How?

Yes i drilled and rawl plugged the fence posts . You need to be very careful drilling them ! Then the outside has two legs going down to the floor . The bench has four posts concreted into the ground so i think i will use that to support the new bigger bench .
Im guessing most of the trees will prefer to be under it for the winter ?

Skill would be knowing what trees need the cover over winter .

Those that generally have drier mixes - so pines, then junipers and conifers generally. Much less of a problem with deciduous and much less of a problem when you have appropriate free draining soil.
