Anyone planted any Mullberry trees in central Texas for wildlife? Ive heard deer love the leaves and fruit and hogs and turkey love the berries. Thinking of planting a few.

I have some large ones here. I don't see any small ones as the deer eat them off before they get big. They would be good but you would have to keep them protected for quite a while.

I had never seen one till I moved to the Hill Country. We had only very old large ones along the flowing creeks or in the drainages in the areas were water collected or stood after rains. Like Don, I never saw a small one.

I've never seen them outside of town, or around homes, but they are often in the wildlife recommended section of nurseries. I know the ones we had brought in a lot of birds and drop profusely. I have tried to buy a couple but you have to order them early as they seem to sell out fast (online) Womack nursery near stephenville has them iirc.

Mulberry is easy to start from cuttings, using root hormone to help get them started. You can easily start dozens of plants in containers for transplant later. Do a search on YouTube for some examples.

I was thinking about planting these behind my house. Iíll be able to water them easily and put up some tree protectors to keep deer from eating them.

ST, they ought to do well there, we had them at one house and with some care, they grow pretty fast, great berries to if you like that kind of "stuff", make good pies and jam.
