Little Leaf Linden

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.

One of the few walnut varieties native to Canada. The wood from this attractive species is used in a lot of specialty products.

A self-fertile nut tree that has better yields when planted near other butternuts. The meat of the Butternut is very mild, sweet, and oily. Often sought after by nut hunters.

Butternut is intolerant of shade and poor draining soil. It can survive zone 2, but reliably produces nuts in zone 3. Butternut canker has decimated this species in its native range.
