    Default Are lynn trees the same species as lin, linden, basswood?

    Hello everyone,

    I was wondering if anyone could help me with some semantics. I've been researching about nectar producing trees in my area.
    What I can't confirm is, if the lynn trees that Binford Weaver talks about, that Lynn Grove, Texas was named for are the same as
    linden, lin, carolina basswood? Any help from any of the botanists, gardeners, or naturists here sure would bee appreciated.
    Thanx Steven

    Never mind, I found it. But thanx

    Yes. linden or basswood trees are also known as lynn (spelled like Loretta Lynn) trees.

    up here in ky the oldtimers called linden trees, lynn trees, they was onve hollowed out and used as beegums because they are soft wood and easy to work with, they make good honey, similiar to sourwood.

    Thanks for the confirmation Mountainbee. That's what I figured. I was trying to be sure. Since we're working with the english language,
    it could have been any type of tree. Here's an example. We have people in my area that call eastern redbuds, dogwoods. Steven
