LOVE your blogs. Would there have been
mesquite trees near Texas A & M ? If so ,
I didn't know what they were. You did it
again - need more info on a subject you
have covered. Keep me curious. Thanks.

My grandmother had me chew the end of a small mesquite twig and use it for a toothbrush, with salt and baing soda.

Thanks for the comment. Desperate for shade trees, I guess, south Texas planted Australian ones. Eucalyptus. Australian pines. There were some hackberries. I remember my grandmother had the trunks white-washed in the spring. Orange and grapefruit trees became ornamentals.



interesting read Dac

got me thinking about trees in my life

one exercise I learned about in 1976 was the Guided Visualization of Trees in our lives and have used it ever since.

Apple, Pear, Peach, Cherry and Dutch Elm were the trees of my youth in Northeast Detroit.

not great for climbing or treehouse building though
