What sort of Mesozoic wood are you trying to simulate? The Mesozoic Era lasted 180 million years---vegetation composition varied a lot by time (not to mention place). I would recommend researching the specifics of whatever paleo-ecosystem you're trying to recreate rather than simply lump together a bunch of plants you know were around by dinosaur times (which would be like reconstructing a Holocene habitat with a mixture of acacias, spruces, and saguaros).

Acacia and saguaro is a perfectly normal combination in southern Arizona though you would have to go uphill a bit to find Engelmann spruce.
