Regarding mesquite trees: the seedpods or beans of the mesquite can lie dormant for up to 40 years waiting for conditions to be just right for sprouting. Early-day ranchers like W.T. Waggoner called mesquite “the devil with roots” because they absorb all of the water in their surroundings, causing other plants and trees to wither away and die. This, in turn, allows more mesquites to move in and take over. Yup.

Beauty is only skin deep but Texas is to the bone.
