In terms of climate, mesquite trees can grow in gardening zones 6b through 9. Parts of MA are in zones 6b and above- check this map to see where you are:

The bigger challenge might be that mesquites are desert trees, so you will need to provide it with very well-drained soil and a sunny spot. Here is some more info about them:
