TQ0589 : Veteran yew tree, Harefield churchyard

taken 8 years ago, near to Harefield, Hillingdon, Great Britain

Veteran yew tree, Harefield churchyard
Veteran yew tree, Harefield churchyard
As with many old yews, this one is hollow, and though in good health, has begun to fragment - to split into sections which could in time establish themselves as separate trees (which would, of course, be clones). An attempt has been made to bind the parts together - to prevent the various portions from collapsing outwards, or fragmenting further.

In the case of the great yew at Ankerwycke Link part of the tree seems to have originated as a young shoot growing up within the shelter of the hollow trunk. The same may have happened here at Harefield.
