Hi - I know that the seeds from sycamore trees have been linked to atypical myopathy if ingested but does anyone know if the seedlings pose the same risk? Also has anyone got any experience of using grazeon on the seedlings and if it works? Thanks x

My friend had these in her paddock and she's ended up digging the seedlings out as the normal spray she uses didn't work on them. I think the seedlings post the same risk but not 100% sure on that, most people aren't taking any chances round here tbh as there was a local case of it the other week :(

There have been several posts in recent days about this and an article in H&H.

One poster tragically lost her horse very quickly and suddenly after sycamore seedlings appear in their fields.

Someone else will be able to post links, which I am not good at doing.
