Light bark, leaves split, fast growing. Loses leaves in late fall/ winter
I really can’t say which mulberry that is, or even if it’s a male or female… based on that single leaf…
Likely it’s the native red mulberry… and a desirable bird attractant…
You’ll want to compare to the imported white mulberry, and the invasive paper mulberry…
I have a positive ID…
Pictured above is a leaf from a white mulberry, note the pronounced jagged edge of the leaf.
I took a buncha pictures for comparison…
