  1. Small Scale Sawmill looking for interesting hardwood species to covert from 10” to 30” dia. minimum length 4ft Yew, Walnut, Mulberry, Beech, Fruitwood, spalted and burrs etc Can collect 20 miles radius of Gloucester. Don't ring it up - sell it as a sawlog
  2. The native English Yew is a tree of many mystical and religious associations. Incredibly long lived the oldest reported is in Llangernyw Wales and is estimated to be 4000 years old with a circumference of 16 metres. At the Barcham Trees nursery in Ely, UK, we have some Yew 1m tall to 2.5m tall in 55-100 litre pots available now. The trees capacity for regeneration is outstanding; especially considering it is a conifer. A medium tree of conical appearance its hard wood can support this evergreen to a great age. Often used for hedging it also makes a fine specimen tree. Very good for parks and gardens. All parts of the tree are poisonous. It can grow on highly calcareous or highly acidic soils if there is good drainage. We stock these in both bush form and clear stem. Mature height: 7-12m Mature spread; 5-10m Further product information at the link below:- https://www.barchampro.co.uk/store/products/taxus-baccata Enquiries to [email protected]
  3. I'd be grateful for any advice from people in the know. My yew tree is looking unwell and I'd be very sad if it died. All the other yews in the area are much greener and more bulked out. It did have a reasonable 'crop' of berries which I'm hoping is a sign it's not quite dead yet - but is there anything I can do to help it out? Any advice would be appreciated. Few more (bad) pics here: https://goo.gl/photos/oTBRTbHbABBMX97j8 Edit: I don't mind paying for someone to come and do some pruning / fixing if that would help in any way...
  4. I have recently bought a new house and there is a 15ft Yew outside my house (within the boundaries of my wall). It blocks light and I would like to either: - completely uproot it - trim it to about half the size I have been warned against both for different reasons. Someone told me not to completely remove it because it could cause the land to sink where the roots extend to (Its about 4m away from my front door). Also that the roots are sucking up lots of water which could lead to excess water beneath my house?? Also been told that cutting it back by half would be difficult and it could take years before it goes green again. What would you advise?
  5. Does anyone out there where I can source some descent sized slabs of oak, ash, yew for my furniture projects ? I live near Manchester airport. Cheers all. Gary
  6. Hiya. We are based near Bordon, Hampshire. We had a number of trees felled last April and kept a few of the tree trunks (ends were PVA’d at the time). We are knocking our house down to rebuild later this year and had hoped to use some of the wood in the new house. But costs are running away with us (and we haven’t even started the build yet!) so unfortunately bespoke staircases, etc, have become a luxury we simply can’t afford. The wood available is listed below. It may not all be suitable for milling (any that isn’t we will retain for logs). Anybody interested? Some photos attached - more available to e-mail if required. Pennies gratefully received into house fund. Thanks.

  7. Can anyone help? One of our customers asked the lads to treat the stump of a yew we had just removed. We only carry glyphosate and so it was applied. 3 months later, customer is complaining of an adjacent yew dying back badly. My questions are: a) second yew is about 5m from removed yew (both roughly 450mm dbh), how likely is this due to grafted roots and translocation of the glyphosate? b) as I suspect the answer to a) is "very likely", is there anything that can be done for the affected yew to sustain it with the hope that it might on some new cambium and survive. Your thoughts? Cheers
  8. Hi all, An old friend of mine who I recently got in touch with on Facebook is on the lookout for some long grain Yew. He says he will pay cash If anyone would like his email address, please message me. Not something im into but im sure someone will see this post with info.. Regards
