On this episode of ID That Tree, Purdue Extension forester Lenny Farlee introduces you to an often overlooked native Indiana species, the red mulberry. This tree, often found in the shade or in river bottom areas, features variable leaves in an alternate arrangement, gray to brown flaky bark and black/dark purple berries, loved by animals and humans alike.
