You may have noticed your Mesquite trees putting on their annual bean pods. With the prolific nature of some trees, you may have even noticed the tree branches sag from the weight of them.
Yep, it’s that time of year! Although these bean pods are edible; primarily they have been ground down to make flour and used for either bread or tortillas, in our landscapes they are often an unsightly nuisance. Rest assured, our team has a plan for removing them from your community landscapes.
As they begin to fall, we will be making slight adjustments with our trimming cycles so that the areas with the pods on the ground can be cleaned up. Keep in mind, these trees do not drop all the pods at one time. Instead they drop them over the span of a few weeks, possibly over a month. So, we ask that you be patient, we will have your landscape back to its normal beauty rather quickly!
