Any special measures in the surrounding hard surfacing?

For the Yew?

If so, then no special measures in terms of root protection.

At the other end of the scale from the red oak reduction above, here's a little experiment I've been watching for the last 10 years or so.

 

Yew tree that was in the way of development.

One of a pair that were down for removal.

Rather than fell both we topped one to see what would happen.

 

The Chicken of the woods (Laetiporus sulphureus) doesn't fruit every year and varies as to where it pops out.
