Mesquite tree with no leaves

Zone 86403 | jmerrill added on December 1, 2017 | Answered

A landscaping company I hired to clean up the yard and trim back trees trimmed one of the mesquites so harsh, he removed all the limbs with leaves ( I no longer use this landscaper!). Should I continue to hope it will sprout new leaves? It was cut back in September and this is December 1st. I cut into the body of the tree and there is still green so it appears to still be alive. Any advice?

If you still see green then the tree will likely recover. It will just take some time. This article will give you more information on the tree: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/mesquite/growing-mesquite-trees.htm
