Yews (Taxus baccata) grow from northern Europe to North Africa, especially in England where the English have cultured this remarkable tree for hundreds of years. Yews can reach an age of more than 1000 years. Yew burlwood with 'peppered' wild grain showing lots of black eyes is extremely rare and very sought after. The wood is very hard, tough and springy. The colour varies from light creamy, reddish to purple, dark brown to almost black. It works well without any problems.
