March 2011 – Peter Norton: A male yew, hollow and with three internal stems. The inner shell is full of needle drop to a height of about 2′. Four main leaders currently grow from a 6′ bole with one showing hollowing while a further two have decayed and been cut back. Girth recorded as follows: 11′ 2” (340cm) at 1′ 6”. I normally measure at the root crown or 1′ from the ground depending on the root growth, but the extra inches were required due to the amount of needle drop that was spilling from the basal cavity. I also recorded 12′ 6” (381cm) at 2′ and 14′ 0” (427cm) at 3′.
