Greenspire Little Leaf Linden

Zone Zone 5-Milwaukee, WI | jmiwinski added on June 11, 2015 | Answered

Our home has the above tree (to the best of our knowledge). Could you please tell me: 1) How long does it take to "mature"? 2) What is the mature size? 3) Is there any time of year in Zone 5 where low hanging branches could be pruned, so as not to have a person hit in the face when using a riding lawn mower? Thank you.

The Little Leaf Linden grows at a medium rate at 13" to 24" a year.
It is best to prune a deciduous tree in it's dormant period.
This causes less stress on a tree.
