Yew trees (Taxus baccata) are widely spread all over Europe, they have been cultivated in England for centuries for their valuable wood, and they can live more than 1000 years. Peppered burl wood with small eyes is very rare and highly sought after for the finest furniture and woodturnings! Yew wood is very hard, tough, heavy, highly elastic and because of these characteristics, it is sought after by bow makers. The wood is also very durable in wet conditions. Yew is the hardest coniferous wood, so it can be easily processed with all tools and it's planed surfaces become very smooth.
