The deciduous tree Tilia platyphyllos is endemic to much of Europe. It's commonly used as a decorative tree in parks, as well as a shade or lawn tree. It has become established in many parts of North America, most notably in New England and the Midwest, where it is known as Big-leaf Linden. It's a narrowly domed tree with a modest growth rate that may reach (rarely) 100 feet in height. Dark grey bark with fine cracks and furrows develops later on the reddish-brown juvenile stems. The branches branch out at a broad angle above. The twigs are somewhat pubescent and reddish-green.
