ID tip: Don't confuse this tree's leaves with red or white mulberry (Morus spp.). The margins of basswood are sharply saw-toothed/jagged, but the margins of mulberry are tightly scalloped/rounded. Besides, if you look hard enough on a mulberry tree you'll find a few irregularly shaped leaves (with extra tips, sort of like sassafras), but not on basswood.
