This description is for Taxus baccata: Taxus baccata or Common Yew is an evergreen tree that grows to 20 metres in height. The trunk can be up to 2 metres in diameter. The trunk is brown with thin bark that flakes off in scales. The leaves are dark green, thin and narrow and grow around the tree in a spiral. The leaves are highly poisonous. It grows yellow flowers in the springtime then in autumn it bears red berries. Yews are slow growing and have a long life. Its hard to determine the actual age of a yew tree as the trunks often hollow out with age making it impossible to count the rings. It is thought that some living yew trees are around 2000 years old.
