Theres Velvet Mesquite, Honey Mesquite and screwbean Mesquite here.
Northern Texas has, I think, Black Mesquite. Theres really not much difference, I know the Velvet is denser though, ideal for rockers, canes, etc. The honey has a slightly redish'r tone....the wood, for trunks boxes dressers etc.
I was inspecting a live oak today, humungus, I dont think anyone would give it to me or let me cut it down. I probably wouldnt through my own free will. Magnificant tree.
On rare occasions Magnifacnce get bulldozed too though.
