A nice birdie visited 2-3 years ago and blessed me with this tree. It is about 20 feet tall and the leaf resembles a fig except it is rather pointy. The tree and the bird and I all live in zone 7. I dont recall seeing any fruit. Maybe it is still a baby and needs more time. Should it be pruned.

Red mulberry. (native)
A keeper!
There are male mulberry trees, the female trees produce the fruit....
There are female trees that have male flowers...

I wouldn't prune yet...
If its a female, and males are nearby, you should see some fruit soon!

Awesome. I love native stuff. Maybe it is a female. I am on the edge of a hundred acre hardwood forest so hopefully there is a pollinator. One branch has grown through my wire fence so I think I will snip and repair the fence.
Thank you!
