A hollowed out yew, whose trunk is intact only to a height of about 3′. The hollow was partially filled with soil, old heartwood and yew leaves. It remains a partial shell to a height of about 15′, above which there is plentiful new growth. On the living section of the tree, branching starts at a height of 7’/8′ and upwards. Girth was 12′ 7” (384cm) measured at 3′ above the higher ground. There was a large piece of old Chicken of the Woods (Laetiporus sulphureus) fungus on the ground.
With a girth of under 4m the tree is presently classified as notable. Because it displays veteran characteristics it will in the future be classified as V-con (veteran on account of its condition).
