    Can I save a yellow Taxus Baccata?

    So today in a spur of the moment I purchased an English Yew from a garden centre that was 80% off, it's huge and something about it made me fall in love so without really thinking about it I purchased it and ran home. Now the tree is about 5 - 6ft but it's a yellowy colour all over. I know this...

    Recent work on a collected yew (taxus)

    This is a yew I collected from a hedge row about 3 years ago, and this year I decided to do some work on it... this one had much of its foliage strength on one side, so I decided to use the weaker side for dead wood features. This is the tree before starting... I cleaned up the bark a bit...

    Yews in autumn

    I wanted to get some opinions on what can be done with yews from September on into autumn (zone 7). I've always done work on them in spring, but I wasn't able to do much this year because of some injuries to my arms. From what I've read, it seems many sources recommend pruning and wiring in...

    This old Yew

    I was parusing the discount bin at a local nursery when I came upon this old Capitata yew. I was attracted to the sinuous trunk line and nice base. Unfortunately it's in ruff shape. It is completely root bound and the foliage yellowed. No sign if powdery mildew or spider mites. I'm planing to...

    Multi trunk Yew B

    I bought this yew last fall with dozens of other trees. $20 I think. I started bare rooting it at 3:00 today and my wife was a little pissed that I didn't look close to being finished at six. I was supposed to make dinner. This was a mildly root bound tree. It was slow going, rake the roots...

    Large urban-dori yew

    Five blocks from where I live is a recently-razed double lot slated to become apartments. I've been watching this place for a while and waiting for the right season and weather; today was the right day. After making peace with the woman living next door and promising to not touch her rose...

    What would yew do in a situation like this?

    Hi there-- I just picked up a large (4-5 foot) Taxus hicksii with a decent trunk (maybe 2 1/2" dia.) for a great price. But it's been sitting in the same 5-gal pot for a couple years at the nursery and it's yellowing badly. Nothing wilted or dead yet, just murky yellow-green all over. I figure...
