O Pioneers

How is the White Mulberry Tree in "O Pioneers!" symbolic?

I need to know how the White Mulberry Tree in this book is symbolic. Im trying to help my sister with a project for school, but we can not read the book. I have tried looking up answers online and I cant find anything. Any Help? I just need to be able to explain to her what the symbolism is. Any answers would be greatly appreciated. Thank you(:

I really looked for this. The closest I could get is, The "White Mulberry Tree" is title of a crucial chapter in Willa Cather's 1913 novel, O Pioneers!, in which two forbidden lovers are killed, a reference to the story of Pyramus and Thisbe.
