Time to start another project, something with doors, windows and a couple more cylinders.
How many doors?

Fortunately, some varieties of mesquite have no thorns. But the issue here was not thorns, was it....? Pretty tough for such a little tree aren't they?

You were supposed to be hitting the high spots, not the side spots.

Their roots go ~straight down until they find water, so they are pretty well anchored. :lol:

Yes, thorns were not a concern, they are heavily rooted, all I did was knock some bark off of it and tire mark it. IT was hard to read the tracks as they were pretty light but I went from a high spot to a hard spot.
