who ate my mesquite?
i had a beautiful yearling mesquite that i deigned to plant Outside The Fence. the next day i found it cut through the trunk evenly about 2" from the ground.
i'm in a fairly unique circumstance as i have stalkers who have damaged my property for several years and so forth. they have spray painted my house and pulled plants out of the ground before. when one is harassed over duration the key is to not attribute everything that goes wrong to your stalkers, or they start to gain power exponentially.
we do have javelinas here, and i've seen them eat some things, but.. a mesquite branch? trunk was about 3/8" thick.
the cut was quite even so it would either have been a tool or a wide tooth. there are no deer or anything larger than the javelinas here.
does anyone have some insight into javelina diet that can verify this for me? thank you :/
then, i will have to do all of my planting at night.
