Taxus baccata (Common Yew) is one of our longest-living, native trees. It is an evergreen, coniferous group of plants that are extremely versatile, being used as large and small trees as well as large or small shrubs, plus hedging and topiary! It is a hardy plant with an abundance of benefits to wildlife including spring flowers for pollen, autumn fruits for food and a shelter and nesting place to many birds and mammals. Yew can reach up to 20m in height and a similar width, but can be easily kept at any height with pruning. Yew responds well to pruning, even brutal pruning of older trees, but to be safe and consistent; prune regularly from the beginning. Yew is very hardy and will grow in most conditions but really doesnit do well in waterlogged soils. Common issues with Yew is that the leaves turn a burnt orange colour, this is more than often a sign that they're sat in water.
