Iconic / Famous Ancient Tree
This unique tree is a wonderful example of a layering tree, as it has ten major branches, some of them supported by props, and all subdivided. At around five metres from the bole, the branches reach the ground and sprout new growth.
An 1824 poem by James Miller, and more notes and photos of the Ormiston Yew can be found on the Ancient Yew Group website
