Linden trees are planted in many parks and other urban landscapes, since they are strong and can resist quite a lot of abuse. They are also beautiful and smell great in the early summer when the flowers emerge.
Here are some hints on how to recognize a Linden tree near you:
- Check out the leaves
- Look for flowers (June-July)
- Check the little branches at the bottom of the trunk, next to the root system. This is common, but not every tree has it. We do not know why some trees have and others dont.
There are many species and crosses, all have slightly different branches and leaves.
One important question is: Which one has the most delicious leaves?
