Red face Littleleaf Linden

Hello,

We are about to plant a littleleaf linden tree in our backyard. Does anyone know how long it will take for it to reach full growth? I know this is a fast growing tree. I wonder if we made a mistake taking this tree. (it was free from the builder) How far from a fence should this also be planted?

Thanks

It's a great tree!

I'm not a professional, I'm just a guy who had a Littleleaf Linden at a previous home I owned. I'd love to have another one. I wouldn't hesitate at all to plant this. I would keep it a fair distance from the house since they do grow to be quite full. But they're beautifully formed, very symetrical treees.

Hi Tobypoo,

Little leaf linden aka Tillia cordata can grow to 80' tall and up to 50' wide. Since the roots of a tree grow beyond the outer drip edge of the mature canopy, plant at least 30' from a structure.

If you need sites on how to properly plant, mulch and water just let me know.
