American Basswood


The American basswood blooms in June, oftentimes attracting enough bees that their buzzing can be heard from several feet away! Honey made from American basswood flowers is a gourmet item. Chipmunks, mice, and squirrels feed on the tree's seeds, while rabbits and voles feed on its bark. Its leaves are heart-shaped and its flowers are small and white. A mature basswood can range in height from 40-130 feet!
