About Broussonetia Papyrifera
The paper-mulberry grows best in well-drained soil in a sheltered location but in full sun. It propagates easily by seeds, cuttings, or root suckers. The bark was commonly used to make paper and cloth products. They make excellent street or yard trees because they are not messy with dropping fruit.
