This poor little Mulberry tree was literally ripped out of the sand that it was growing in. During that process the trunk was torn in half. It lay on the road verge for several months before I found it, and made the appropriate rescue. The trunk is about 3ft long and 9in diameter including the bark at ground level. The top branches into 4 limbs so there should be a nice bit of crotch there. Also note that there are numerous blisters (warts?? burl) along the trunk. There is about 12 feet of roots, ranging from about 1in to 8in dia. I have no idea whether the root is any good yet, but I am about to cut it up and find out.
Perhaps some of you guys might know?????
Thanks for looking.
