The yew retains its girth for a considerable height, giving it an appearance of great strength and solidity. New wood flows around removed branches, and there are no living branches until a height of about 10ft. These branches dip all around the tree but have been sawn off several feet above the ground. The 4th photo shows where birds have narrowed the entrance to a hollow space inside the tree.
