Red Mulberry Identification and Relationship with Birds

Medium-sized deciduous tree, most known for its plentiful, blackberry-like fruit that attracts many birds. The Red Mulberry ranges from 20 to 50 feet in height with a spread of 30 to 50 feet. A pollinated female is required for summer fruit production. This tree will also attract insects (which will in turn attract insectivorous birds). Red Mulberry is often planted for the sole purpose of attracting birds, for which it is very effective, especially when it comes to bringing in colorful birds like the Rose-Breasted Grosbeak and Scarlet Tanager.
