American Linden

The American linden, also known as "basswood," is our only native linden tree. A beautiful, large tree, the European cousin of this tree is commonly seen lining avenues and park paths in Europe. The linden blossom is famed for its light, sweet fragrance, which perfumes the air in late spring and early summer. It is an important food source for many pollinators. It also casts lovely shade!
