    No, both bark and color are wrong for mulberry. That said, I have no idea what it *is.* Some exotic yard tree, perhaps?

    Don't think it's mulberry either. I have some and this bark doesn't match nor is the wood yellow at all. I found some after sandy that was growing between the sidewalk and street suggesting that if was planted by the town. Found a bit more recently in the the town's sandy scrap yard so it can't be that rare. A large stump there too about 25-30" at the base so it must be sizable.

    I'll see if I can get a split pic.

    Can you split it? Im sure that its not mulberry. But the bark looks like that of honey locust, its heart wood doesnt appear to be pink enough. however that might be due to the picture too.
