Notes:

This is a small tree growing in Newnan, GA. It has lots of suckers in the drip line area, and has large leaves like a philodendron, according to the homeowner.
The bark is smooth. The tree is in part shade.

The homeowner wants to cut it down because of the suckers, but it’s so pretty, I wanted an ID on it before he takes action.

    This appears to be a white mulberry. They are terribly invasive. Once they get a foot in the door, they will be there forever.

    I have both Chinese Quince and Mulberry; I think it is the latter.

    Are the rings actually damage to the bark? Can we get a closeup?
