Tiliaceae -- Basswood family

    Timothy LaFarge

    White basswood (Tilia heterophylla) is a mediumsized tree  of the upper Piedmont region and the Appalachian Mountains where  it grows on moist, welldrained soils in coves or along mountain  streams with other hardwoods. Its growth is moderately fast and  it produces commercially valuable lumber. The soft, lightweight  wood is used for cabinetry, woodenware, and pulpwood, among its  many uses. The name beetree linden is common because of the  extensive use of this tree by bees for honey production. It is  also an attractive landscape tree.
