April 2008 – Edwin Pretty: Girth is uncertain but the tree ‘is much larger than it looks on the photos’.
2017 – Paul Wood: The Upper Breinton Yew is a most interesting tree, well established and growing on a parish boundary. It now has an extra cover of hedge like growth around it, though the bole was visible enough for me to estimate a girth in excess of 18’/19′. I also formed the impression that this was once larger girthed. Major limbs that have been removed have new growth over them and there were also hollows. The tree’s appearance is squat, with a covering of foliage that varies in different parts of the tree.
In 2018 the local authority planning department has recognised the significance of this yew and have stated that they will draw up a Tree Preservation Order.
