The Basswoods are mostly trees and shrubs with simple alternate leaves with some smaller plants in the family including jute. The Tila are of the most interest in herbalism, the leaves and flowers are used to make a soothing tea and the inner bark can be used as a emollient. Linden trees are native to the eastern forests but are often planted as ornamentals in other areas of the country. Elpel, Thomas J.
