Why is my weeping mulberry losing leaves?

Recently purchased home with overgrown Weeping Mulberrry (2). In the process of cleaning the yard, trimmed @ a foot off bottom to get it that far off the ground (mature trees 12-15' tall). 3 weeks later (mid Sept) the leaves all look like they've been ravaged by a plague of locusts and are falling off, but no evidence of any infestation. Have I damaged it or is it just rebelling? Thanks, Santa at his Southern Retreat

Thanks for writing. Without being able to see your tree in person, I can't say what's going on. There may not be a problem -- it's the end of the season so it is natural for these deciduous trees to lose their leaves. Wait to see if it leafs out normally in spring. If it does, then there's no problem.
