The top 10 feet of my yew tree has died and I am having it pollarded. I have a friend who wants some for woodturning but most will get chipped. I haven't measured it but at a guess the trunk is 10" diameter and branches are 3 or 4".
I don't know how good the wood is until it is cut but anyone local (to Leigh-on-Sea) is welcome to come and see. What isn't claimed on the day (3rd Sept) will be put through the chipper.
PM me if of interest.

Anyone know any woodturners that might like some yew wood?

I always thought that yew posed a health hazard (and not only to French soldiers) but, according to this website, just about every wood I can think of does!"Our business in life is not to succeed but to continue to fail in good spirits." RLS

I think its the foliage that is poisonous.
