From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    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.)
