Little Leaf Linden vs Green Alder

Tilia cordata

Alnus crispa

Little Leaf Linden
Green Alder

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.

Green Alder is a cold hardy, native shrub. It is often planted on infertile sites so it can fix nitrogen from the air and improve the soil.

Green Alder is known for its smooth grey bark and attractive shiny green leaves; it is commonly used in reclamation.
