This is a mulberry tree, Morus alba, also known as the white or common mulberry. For additional information, please see the fact sheet at the following link: http://plantfacts.osu.edu/pdf/0247-763.pdf

I'm also providing another good publication with color photos of white mulberry leaves: https://www.extension.purdue.edu/extmedia/fnr/fnr_237.pdf . Note that while the red mulberry is also listed and is native to Michigan as well as Indiana, the plant you submitted photos of is a white mulberry.

Thank you for using Ask an Expert!
