That is definitely a mulberry tree, slough depending on how it has been pruned may also present as an unruly bush. If this is in an area that you walk a lot you may want to lay a tarp or cloth beneath it when the fruit starts dropping a lot. This allows you to harvest the fully ripe fruits as well as not staining everything in sight.

There are quite a few different mulberry trees with black fruit.
