Littleleaf Linden

Tilia cordata • Small-Leaved Linden

Non-native

Littleleaf linden is a deciduous tree, typically growing 20-40 meters tall. It is a species of Tilia native to most of Europe, however it is also widely  cultivated in North America as a substitute for the native Tilia americana (American linden or basswood). Littleleaf linden grows in sun or partial shade and can tolerate alkaline soil if it is moist. It is not particularly tolerant of drought, leaf margins may scorch if stressed.  Many communities plant Linden along the streets due to its rapid growth rate and dense, symmetrical crown however the Littleleaf linden is sensitive to road salt.
