Mulberry tree no leaves yet?

I'm in SE Michigan... All the other trees have leaves but not a mulberry tree we have. We mean to take it down because it's right next to the driveway, but if it died that makes it a little higher priority.

Last August we had another maple fall, it hit some of the mulberry tree branches which I cut off, if that makes for any difference as to the likelihood the tree is dead. I hadn't expected it though because I've heard they can start growing new branches practically even from a stump. (maybe a slight exageration, but I got the impression they weren't that easy to kill)
I'm just a lay person doing DIY as a loner. Eliminating K&T, L&P and sagging structure one room at a time.

could it have been hit by frost? Just saw a mulberry tree that looked dead, but had leafed out for about a week and then we had a freeze and now it looks dead.
