Name

Please ignore the Latin name which was spontaneously provided by iSpot! Tilia sp. will do.

If it is a lime

then, while all limes can sucker, the extensive suckering suggests Tilia x europaea. A narrow-domed crown also fits.

I thought that the leaf shape and suckering looked like a lime, but I wouldn't have described the leaves of a lime as rough to the touch - that is a marker for elms, especially Ulmus glabra. Tilia platyphyllos is distinctly hairy to the touch for much of the growing season.
