I'm sitting at my desk looking out of the window, approximating the number of seed pods on our sycamore tree. There must be thousands, if not tens of thousands. The success rate from our tree must be extremely low, as most if not all will be eaten by the local wildlife, rot/dry out if they don't land on soil, or are removed before they grow to anything substantial.
Which got me thinking. Which species of tree bears the most seeds annually?
Edit: country is the UK. Species is Acer pseudoplatanus
