The Uffculme Yew

This tree will go down as a big loss to the natural world

The Ancient Yew Group have provided the following information -

"Hello Alf
Thanks for the measurement and photos. My colleague Toby Hindson says "6.6
metres at ground, with much convolution and fragmentation in the horizontal
section, as well as obvious signs of previous felling and subsequent is safe and fair to say that the yew is estimated
at 700-850 years old rather than the 500 previously given."
Hope this is useful."

Rather oddly a Mallard has decided this to be a good nest site - Mallards do odd things sometimes
