Little Leaf Linden vs Yellow Birch

Tilia cordata

Betula alleghaniensis

Little Leaf Linden
Yellow Birch

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.

Yellow Birch is a large and valuable hardwood species in northeastern North America. The bark on its limbs and young trunks is silvery-yellowish in colour, hence the name. This tree prefers to grow in cool regions with damp or saturated soil.

Yellow Birch can be tapped for syrup, like Sugar Maple. Although the sap has less sugar content, it flows in greater quantity than maple trees.
