Moraceae -- Mulberry family

    Neil 1. Lamson

    Red mulberry (Morus rubra), called moral in Spanish, is  widespread in Eastern United States. It is a rapid-growing tree  of valleys, flood plains, and low moist hillsides. This species  attains its largest size in the Ohio River Valley and reaches its  highest elevation (600 m or 2,000 ft) in the southern Appalachian  foothills. The wood is of little commercial importance. The  tree's value is derived from its abundant fruits, which are eaten  by people, birds, and small mammals.
