This is the story of a Japanese Yew (Taxus Cuspidata). I think I have told this story once before in my blog but for this new version I have unearthed some previously unseen early photographs whilst the story is brought up to date to a recent styling in February 2023.
Quite a transformation and now with just two live veins feeding the remaining live foliage. The deadwood was made using hand tools only and looked really convincing considering it was newly created.
Keep an eye on the website for part two to catch up on the further development of this remarkable tree.
