How do you care for a mesquite tree?
Velvet mesquite trees prefer areas with full sun exposure and quick-draining soil. They tolerate a variety of soils, including loamy, sandy and dry. They do not do well in wet soil. Planting the mesquite tree in poor soil actually improves the soil because the plant fixes nitrogen in the soil around its roots.
