Patches of young yews are found throught the estate’s woodlands. They are the ‘natural climax timber crop on thin chalk soil, but are vulnerable to wind blow’, which allows regeneration of ash, whitebeam, holly, birch and some beech and continues the cycle. In one small and hidden area a cluster of older yews thrives, with one leaning specimen almost certainly a veteran. There is no danger that the trees in this grove will suffer the fate of those noted in the remaining Tree Notes.
