Annual Growth Rate
The Yew tree has been known to live up to 1500 years.
Linked to the Christian faith past and present, Yew trees still are planted in churches, cemeteries and other holy places.
The foliage is made up of many dark-green needle-like leaves that grow in great density. The ability of Yew to regenerate after being cut makes them perfect for forming and shaping, over time into large hedges and topiary shapes.
Old and beautiful Yew trees, hedges and topiaries can be seen around the UK in stately homes, such as Cliveden, Crathes Castle, Belvoir Castle, Blenheim Palace, Englefield house, Hidcote Manor, Powis Castle or Hampton Court to name just a few.
Yew hedges and screens are often referred to in the landscaping trade as ‘The King of Hedges’.
Fact – The foliage of Yew contains a substance used in the medical industry for the treatment of cancer.
Fact – With exception to the bright-red fleshy seed casings, all other parts of the Yew tree are poisonous to humans and many animals.
