The Wildlife Mulberry tree is one of the first plants to flower in the Spring. The flowers are green and somewhat unremarkable until the fruit ripens and changes color. When planted near harvest marketable crops, the mulberry tree serves well as a distraction from valuable commercial crops like corn and other grains, since mulberries are the more preferred food source for birds and deer.
• Wildlife Mulberry Trees & Mulberry Plants have been planted in a permanent place at wildlife refuges, and the mulberry trees produce tasty berries from Feb. through the Fall months, so that the tree often bears many continuing crops of mulberry fruit each year. A couple of centuries ago, many colonial settlers planted Mulberry Trees, because of the extremely rapid growth and excellent shade that was provided. The mulberry fruit was eagerly eaten by chickens, turkeys and geese or any other farm animals, and mulberries are loved by deer, quail, and turkey and many other fruit eating species.
