Yew trees are some of the oldest living organisms in Europe, with particular individuals thought to be over 2,000 years old. Often found growing in churchyards, the English yew or common yew (Taxus baccata) is surrounded in myth and mystery, and its influence can be found throughout history.

In The Immortal Yew author Tony Hall takes the reader on a fascinating journey to the ancient yew trees of Britain and Ireland, exploring their mythology and folklore.

Tony provides profiles on over 75 publicly accessible yews, with details on their appearance, location, folklore and history, all accompanied with photographs of these stunning individuals. Each tree has its own story to tell, from fragmented, sprawling trunks, ones you can sit inside of, and ancient individuals propped up.
