The female yew grows nearest the road. It has a girth of 17′ 8” (538cm) at 3′. It was measured at this height because of the large flared root system. A large basal cavity in the root flare allowed for observation of one large internal stem with two that are much less in girth. The tree has a top height of 11.4m. Epicormic growth, which has been allowed to grow around the lower bole, hides a fine looking tree.
