Taxus baccata (Yew) a Shrub or a Small Tree?
Planted in the 1980s by Jackie D’Angelo.
Taxus baccata, AKA the “YEW” is a Small Tree, growing up to 25 feet, or less than a house, given enough time.
However, most people know this popular evergreen as a foundation shrub because it takes well to pruning.
Look for our our Taxus (yew) in the middle Section, where it is maturing nicely as a Small Tree.
Check out our Natural Bench at the north end of the arboretum… this bench was made from a 90+ year old specimen, form the estate of Joseph Curtain.
