    I want to add that, I used the Australian websites from the fact that these sites have numerous great photos and with good information.

    Hi Ron, bot of these are present in the US. Check out these these for more information. Both are native to Asia If it is a Morus, it could be other species as well. But I’m not an expert on mulberry to tell from one species to another… Appreciate for the feedback. Best wishes!

    Since both suggestions specify this tree/sapling is native to Australia, does it make sense to be found here in Georgia? Thanks.

    Maybe a type of mulberry saplings(Morus) or a relative in the same family the paper mulberry (Broussonetia ayfera) ? Mulberry has long yellowish roots. Check out a species in the group (the M. alba) images of the last two & one with the leaf underside from the included link below to compare. Flowers are needed to confirm of theses suggestion. Best wishes!
