This trees favours good, loamy sites, but can also be found on sandy, infertile soils, and are drought resistant. Dormant shoots can resist winter frost and temperatures as low as -34°C, It is a deciduous tree growing to 20–40 m (66–131 ft) tall, diameter 1/3 to 1/2 the height, with a trunk up to 1 m diameter. In Britain T. cordata is considered an indicator of ancient woodland, and is becoming increasingly rare. The tree is fairly disease-resistant, though a common problem is leaf scorch where planted on dry soils, however leaf scorch is not a long-term problem as the leaves are lost in the autumn. It can also be known as Small leaved linden.
