Abstract

American linden (Tilia americana) is native along much of the Missouri River that borders Nebraska. It is a large tree with a rounded and very dense crown. American linden, also known as basswood, has been a favorite for planting in the city as well as around farm homes. Because of its size and shape it makes an excellent shade tree.
