Sycamore – Acer pseudoplatanus

£1.10£3.00

This tree appears everywhere, usually where it isn’t welcome! Some people call it a weed, but we shouldn’t knock it. In my mind with so many  problems with many tree species today the Sycamore is one species that seems to be problem free and could fill gaps left by diseases such as Ash die back.

Description

This tree appears everywhere, usually where it isn’t welcome! Some people call it a weed, but we shouldn’t knock it. In my mind with so many  problems with many tree species today the Sycamore is one species that seems to be problem free and could fill gaps left by diseases such as Ash die back. Apparently it can live as long as 400 years and reach as high as 15 meters, as an individual tree it is very imposing and makes excellent shelter for sheep and cattle from sun and rain. I have never seen a Sycamore which has been struck by lightning, so safer than some in a storm. It grows well in groups as trees, but hopeless planted as a hedge  to hold animals back. It will do well in any reasonable soil.
