Hello, does anyone know what the name of this tree is? It’s our front yard tree. I love it as I think it’s beautiful. The other day a neighbor stopped by and asked if they could get some leaves to use for warms that they have. Made me wonder what kind of tree it is. If anyone can tell from the leaves I’d really appreciate it. Thank you in advance. Jaamine

It appears to be 'white mulberry', probably 'fruitless mulberry'. And the request for leaves was probably for silk worms.
