Are you saying you know what it is and you want people to guess it correctly?
Otherwise, including a picture of a leaf would greatly help.
Orange roots -- osage orange.

Close, but no cigar. Osage Orange bark looks quite a bit different.
You've got the right family (Moraceae).
Looks exactly like mulberry bark but that doesn't mean it can't be something else.
Might I suggest that contests for the mere point of frivolity (it seems the OP already knows the answer) be posted only in the "name that plant" forum?
I'd like to have a friendly private chat with you. Would you be willing to do that?
Nope. I don't privately chat w/anyone here.
But on second thought, I don't mind so much where you posted this, but the title of the thread ought to have been something like "Contest: Name this tree".
Looks like Showdown at High Noon avoided.........................so is it a Mulberry? If not, don't leave us hanging.........
It's a male Mulberry. I think it's white, but not sure.
The largest leaf (on the right) is 5.5" from tip to base (not including stem)
