Answer: Weeping Mulberry is Morus alba pendule "Chaparral", a small tree with cascading, arching branches and large, glossy dark green leaves. It will reach a mature height of 12 - 20 feet with a spread of 15 - 20 feet. I'd prune away the suckers that are emerging 4-5 feet away from the trunk and then cut back the trailing branches to keep them from resting on the lawn. Some gardeners cut everything at an even height, one to two feet above the ground. Trimming in this way makes the tree look attractive and well kempt. Mulberry trees typically do not require fertilization, especially when growing in a lawn area - any lawn fertilizer you use will also feed your tree. And, since it is growing well, there's no need to feed it other than when you normally feed your lawn. Best wishes with your tree!
