   Morus rubra has winter buds that are 5-7 mm long.The buds are somewhat divergent to the stem and  the bud scales have dark margins.
   Albas buds are only 2-4 mm long and appressed.
   This being said when it comes to immature trees in that juvenile state measurements are not always accurate.
   I doubt that you would be dealing with Nigra.
