This is a beautiful Linden tree. I recently bought a Trunk, with just some beginning branches, in a one gallon pot. The problem I have, is that as much as I love trees, I honestly can NOT remember EVER seeing a Linden Tree in the USA. MAYBE they are somewhere, but not around North Central Pennsylvania. I noticed on my pre-bonsai linden, that the first branch is VERY low, like this tree. I almost cut it off, to go with the common bonsai ratio of 1/3 trunk, 2/3 branches. Do the large Linden trees in Germany often have the low first branch? Thanks.
