American Basswood; also commonly known as an American Linden

Tilia americana

This is a tree native to Rhode Island and is also found within Wilcox Park. These trees prefer moist places with a range of elevation preference. Making this park the perfect place for this type of tree. I liked this particular tree as it looks very rugged. I just wish I was able to see it's clusters.
