    Well, the tradition in Texas is to use it for barbed-wire fence posts (although juniper is preferred).  Mostly, it gets used for smoking/barbeque wood.

      Subject: [MedievalSawdust] Green Mesquite

      Hey all,

      My landlord just cut down a mesquite tree, and he's leaving cuttings on the property for firewood.  What can I do with green mesquite for projects (besides spoons)?  The largest straight piece is about two feet long, with about 6"-8" diameter.  Should the stuff be seasoned first?
