From Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary :

  Mulberry
     Heb. bakah, "to weep;" rendered "Baca" (R.V., "weeping") in Ps.
     84:6. The plural form of the Hebrew bekaim is rendered "mulberry
     trees" in 2 Sam. 5:23, 24 and 1 Chr. 14:14, 15. The tree here
     alluded to was probably the aspen or trembling poplar. "We know
     with certainty that the black poplar, the aspen, and the
     Lombardy poplar grew in Palestine. The aspen, whose long
     leaf-stalks cause the leaves to tremble with every breath of
     wind, unites with the willow and the oak to overshadow the
     watercourses of the Lebanon, and with the oleander and the
     acacia to adorn the ravines of Southern Palestine" (Kitto). By
     "the sound of a going in the tops of the mulberry trees" we are
     to understand a rustling among the trees like the marching of an
     army. This was the signal that the Lord himself would lead forth
     David's army to victory. (See SYCAMINE.)
