    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...

    Yew probably shouldn't have done that...

    Bought this yew at the box store, not a good time to do work on them I think,but wanted to practice. Got inspired from Rob C.'s 5 year progression on one of his yews. Took alot of foliage off to see what's doing. Made a jin, and tried to see the tree with in. And that's what I came up...

    Spring bonsai problems...

    Hi all, For the first time in a few years I am having real problems bringing my bonsai out of hibernation. The trees have moved around a lot, unfortunately, and I am worried that their current home outside my window is not providing enough light. My trees are 2 Elms, and a Yew. They've been...
