    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…

    Ok…
    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…
