Yew produces fleshy, cup-shaped, red fruits which are eaten by birds. The flesh around the seed is harmless but the seed itself is very poisonous, as is the cut foliage and bark.
This is a very long- lived tree, with some specimens reckoned to be at least to 2,000 years old and possibly even older.Yew wood, because of its elastic qualities, was used to make the English longbow.
