Mulberry Tree: TN Nursery suggests the lovely mulberry tree for customers who need a medium-sized tree that will provide attractive, full foliage without growing overly tall.

But many others leave them in the tree to attract and nourish local birds. In fact, some avid birdwatchers reach out to TN Nursery looking for trees to attract their feathered friends--the mulberry is an excellent choice! It provides your backyard birds with early summer nourishment and sturdy branches for nesting.
The Mulberry Tree Is Truly Beautiful
The mulberry tree is a deciduous tree native to North America, Europe, and Asia. It grows in a full-sun location and does not like to stand in the shadow of other trees. Instead, it wants to take center stage in your yard--and yes, it is worthy of such attention.
The mulberry is in the medium height range for trees. It will grow at least thirty feet tall but stop growing at around seventy feet. It produces true green, ovate leaves with softly serrated margins.
The mulberry tree grows from a single, central trunk. The branches will grow sturdy and form a relatively symmetrical shape with a bit of occasional trimming during their young growth phases.
Mulberry tree flowers (called catkins) form in attractively sized clusters around the middle of spring. The blossoms are a creamy white or white with a whisper of fresh spring green. The catkins have an attractive tubular shape that makes way for the clusters of colorful berries in the early summer.
People harvest the berries by hand-picking young trees or by reaching for the branches of a taller mulberry tree by using a long, sturdy pole and giving the branches a shake.
The Mulberry Tree Is Even-Tempered
Some fruit trees are simpler to grow than others--such is the case with the mulberry tree. Besides a sunny location in the yard, it does not ask for much from the gardener. It can tolerate short bouts of drought and poor soil quality.
Pruning will help guide it into a beautiful, shapely tree as it grows. But after it fully develops, it asks nothing from you.
