Yew

The Yew tree is native to Europe and has been used for centuries in England. Traditionally used to make the longbow in the Middle Ages, it is characteristically planted in churchyards and was regarded as sacred by Druids. The Yew is a slow-growing tree and one of the hardest and most durable softwoods, prized for its golden orange heartwood colouring that matures into a yellow-brown streaked with purple, vein clusters, and knots of ingrown bark. The earliest antique Windsor chair backs and table tops were made with yew due to its ideal properties for turning and carving.
