Balsam Poplar vs Little Leaf Linden

Populus balsamifera

Tilia cordata

Balsam Poplar
Little Leaf Linden

Balsam Poplar is a hardy, fast-growing deciduous tree.

Native to Canada east of the Rockies, this large, upright's seedlings are grown from cuttings.

Sometimes they are a male clone, so they don't produce fluff. Other times, the collection was from both male and female trees and there is some fluff produced.

Littleleaf Linden is a large, deciduous shade tree. Its unique, heart-shaped leaves have fine teeth on the margins and are much smaller than those of the Big Leaf Linden.

Its small, fragrant yellow-green flowers are said to have medicinal properties and can also be used to make honey. Littleleaf Linden is a great choice for a boulevard or large lot.
