Morus alba?  The smaller ones I've pried out of the ground are rather tap-rooted.  Can't imagine moving a large tree, unless this root habit changes with age.

tc, s.WI, where we CAN transplant budding things today because a week of rain forecast.

I live in MA, and all the plants are pushing their buds. This isn't a good time to bare-root anything you want to survive. I would either wait until fall dormancy or use a tree-spade if either is a possibility. Because Mulberries are very tough, I would guess a large tree-spade would work, even though it isn't dormant. 

Of course, if the mulberry-owner plans to get rid of the mulberry this spring, and you can't rent a tree-spade, sure, give it a try. It might survive, and as Deb says, what have you got to lose?
