Out of curiosity, why would one living in Texas (I am from Texas) want
to go to the expense and trouble to move a mesquite? They are
relatively abundant and seedlings should be easy to find.
I was thinking that I would get a larger tree faster with the
transplant. I'm not against seedlings, and after doing some research I
