Q.My Fruitless Mulberry Tree Is 60 Years Old And Had Been Dropping Leaves Since July .Should I Cut It Down?

Zone Dallas Texas | Yolanda Nolan added on October 17, 2021 | Answered

It is now mid October but my yard looks like late fall because the leaves yellowed and dropped off…I also noticed this same thing happening to all of the fruitless Mulberry trees in my area. This has never happened before. Could they all be diseased and need to be cut down?

I would be concerned if yours was the only tree doing it in the area but (a) it is fall after all, (b) other mulberries in your area are doing the same. So it must be the start of dormancy. West of DFW Airport in Hurst, the fruitless mulberries still have mostly green foliage but they too should join the club soon. My own fruitless mulberry tree only lasted about 25 years so I am surprised that yours lasted 60 years!
