Three yews. In the first photo is a tree girthing 10 ft 7 ins (3.23 m) taken from the higher ground level. I was informed that many years ago a section of the tree was lost, the owner estimating that three to four feet was cut off when a branch collapsed. Many new branches have attempted to grow back over the years but it needs to be continually trimmed to allow access to the lawn. The second photo shows a twin trunked male with a girth of about 12′. The third is two trees that are so close they appear to be growing into each other. They are both male, the smaller measuring 7 ft 7ins (2.13 m) and the larger 12 ft 9 ins (3.89 m).
