25 Littleleaf Linden

(Tilia cordata )

Littleleaf lindens are widely grown as ornamental trees throughout their native range in Europe. In the 17th and 18th centuries, littleleaf linden was frequently planted to form avenues, and Sarajevo's streets used to be lined with them. While many communities plant linden trees along streets due to its rapid growth rate and dense, symmetrical crown, littleleaf linden is sensitive to road salt. Honeybees love this tree due to its floral aroma.
