    Default maple seeds

    I've lived in the same location for 16 years. I have never seen the amount of sugar maple seeds that have fallen than this year. Anyone else seeing the same thing?

    I've noticed high seed rates for maple species (sugar, silver, red, box elder) as well as hickory, walnut, red bud, black locust, and kousa and flowering dogwood. I have not noticed large crops from oak, elm, or beech. nor from ash, but i sorta put them in a category of their own due to other issues.

    It's hard to say more than ever, because our minds are clued in to process the recent and forget the past.
