Re: Collumnar Irish Yew Root System

What kind of root system can I expect of a 40 year old Yew.

On plant Taxus baccata



Huge amount of root , after 40 years they do spread out and close to the surface , I was told by a head gardener any tree that grows upright always has more roots to make it more stable in the ground , popular being the worse

Why do you ask?
