I assume this is where they get the mulberry branches for this:
a substance we were considering for our floor. Yes, you can have a hardwood-like floor without chopping down any trees, or the people hugging them. In the end, though, we found some nice oak on sale.

In fruit news, my 'mara de bois' strawberries are yummy!

I don't know about fruit production, but pollarding mulberries has a long history in China as a means of raising silkworms. I believe many mulberries along the streets of Sacramento are, or were, pollarded just for the sake of keeping them smaller.
