Their spread is typically about 2/3rds their height.
These trees are notable for their large, dense canopy making them superb shade trees.
Their branching begins relatively low to the ground on the multiple trunks that commonly form just above ground level.
Medium-fast growers, they can be expected to grow 30 feet in 10 years.

Soil: well-drained soil
Water: Water plant once in a week
Temperature: -18° to -17° C (0° to 2° F)

Caring for American linden

  • This tree will develop to its full potential if given full sun and rich, moist, well-drained soil.
  • American linden will tolerate clay, a wide pH range and partial shade. It is noted for its adaptability.
  • Japanese beetles feed heavily on its foliage.
  • Its narrow crotches and soft wood can make the American linden susceptible to storm damage.

Typical uses of American linden

Special features: Because it is a source of bast, the common name "basswood" is derived.

Culinary use: Oil from the linden seed pod has been extracted and used as a substitute for olive oil.

Ornamental use: The fibrous, pliable inner bark (bast) was a significant source of fiber for ropes, cords, mats and nets.
