Acer seeds

Just curious. My Acer produces loads of seeds every year. The odd bee takes an interest in the blossom but I have never seen a seedling. Are they sterile or is it just the wrong conditions?

    I have a mature palmatum disectum and when I used to have a gravel drive, some years I'd find loads of seedlings popping up.
    I did pot some up but after about 2 years they were only about 3" and I lost interest.
    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

    Thanks @Pete.8. It looks like the wrong conditions then. How fortunate!😊
