American Linden

Tilia Americana

Laurel Hill East (Section Q)Tag 475

American Basswood, or American Linden, is a native tree with great value for wildlife – its flowers are full of nectars for bees, its leaves are food for deer and butterfly larva, and squirrels and chipmunks eat the seeds. This specimen tree is the largest in the state, and casts plenty of shade to enjoy on a hot summer day.
