Little Leaf Linden vs Northern Red Oak

Tilia cordata

Quercus rubra

Little Leaf Linden
Northern Red Oak

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.

A medium-sized deciduous tree, the northern red oak can grow to 25 m tall and 30 m in diameter with a crown spread of 18 m. It has a short, massive trunk and an extensive crown in the open, while in the forest it has a tall columnar bole and small rounded head. It is symmetrical and beautifully coloured in the fall. Leaves are 10-20 cm long by 10-13 cm wide, and oblong, with 7 to 11 toothed lobes. Its fruit is an acorn. Bark can be brown to black, with broken to wide flat ridges. Northern red oak is a valuable, fast-growing oak used primarily for lawns, parks, golf courses, and commercial areas. It is often used as a street tree.

The most attractive and fastest growing oak we have seen for the prairies. We are one of the only nurseries growing this tree.
