This female Yew measured 15′ 11″ (485cm) at the root crown and 16′ 1” (490cm) at 3′ (both below and above side limbs at various heights). Branches have tried to layer, both on the south and north side of the tree, however these have failed to produce new growth and are now in the early stages of decay. There is evidence that the tree has been maintained over a long period of time.
