Decision Made

Back in January I posted about trying to make my mind up about whether to keep this Yew Tall or go for a shorter tree. I talked about the sentimental value of this one and the tall character of the tree suited this.

Last night, being on my own while my wife is in America for a few weeks, I decided to drink beer and listen to 80’s music on the radio while playing with trees in my garage. DAB radio has lots of new stations available and this one is right up my street 🙂

So beer in hand, music blasting I sat this tree down in front of me and explored a chop option. No matter what I looked at, I could find a convincing image. I therefore set about thinning and wiring to improve the taller option. This is the result.

and beer bottle for scale 🙂

and sure I have older photos of this tree somewhere but for comparison, this was it 2 years ago.

As Allie is away, it might be an idea to freshen up the lime sulphur work on this one now too 🙂

  1. V nice tree Ian. I’m growing a yew in the flower bed at the moment – if it looks anything like this in ten years time I’ll be really happy! Absolute Radio is great – although for me it’s hard to beat the 90’s station 😉 Guess we never get tired of listening to our teenage anthems!
