Sterilizing a Fruitful Mulberry Tree

shirley74 added on July 13, 2011 | Answered

I live in a mobile home park and removing the tree is out of the question. The tree is 30 years old. When the berries fall, it makes my small yard unusable for a few months and causes stains in my carport and driveway and sometimes gets on people shoes and gets carried indoors. Is there something I can do about this situation, or do I just have to live with it?

There are sprays available that can reduce the tree's ability to produce fruit. They are sold as "fruit eliminator sprays". They are available at many nurseries and certainly online.
