Linden leaf curling

Asked June 10, 2020, 2:10 PM EDT

Do you have any idea what could be causing this curling? There are several lindens on a the property and this is the only one that looks like this. It is not near a farmer's field nor any other specific pollutant.

Is there any damage to the tree trunk or signs of insects on the tree such as mites or aphids?

There are no insects noticeable.

Is there a sticky substance or shine to the leaves at all?

No sticky/shiny residue

The most common linden tree diseases are listed at the following website with information on what to look for. Be sure the tree is getting enough water. Curling leaves on plants can mean lack of moisture. See: https://apps.extension.umn.edu/garden/diagnose/plant/deciduous/linden/leaveswilt.html
