White Oak vs Little Leaf Linden

Quercus alba

Tilia cordata

White Oak
Little Leaf Linden

White Oak is large, long-lived tree with an irregular trunk divided into spreading, often horizontal, stout branches. A highly adaptable tree, White Oak features green acorns and beautiful green leaves that turn red-purple in the fall.

With a huge growth in bourbon and scotch over the past few decades there is an emerging shortage of white oak that is the primary tree used for cask barrels and aging.

Little Leaf Linden is a large, deciduous shade tree that is native to Europe. The leaves are heart shaped with fine teeth on the margins. It has much smaller leaves than Large 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.
