What else will fill the gap left from the devastation of Elms and the potential impact on Ash? Its time people dropped unrealistic and unsupported prejudices.

And yes, they do make good firewood...
You tell em kid

Re: I planted some sycamore seeds....

They grow like mad here. If you plant that here it will be 20ft high in the morning with babies all around. Well maybe not the 20ft bit but you know what I mean and yes it makes excellent firewood similar to beech imo.

Maybe the firewood is why people are so chop-happy, I find it an excellent cash crop, wallop it down, and within a few years its ready again!

Don't the chop-happy-saw-monkeys have to chop em down to make good firewood?

An personally yes, despite the bloody greenfly, I rank a mature sycamore along with any ash, oak or beech.
