    Picture 2, all them swirl marks are where a branch once was, picture 3 looks like a yew tree. Have you got any pictures of the tree full length and how tall is it.

    If you are cutting a yew tree down make sure to remove all the foliage as highly poisonous to farm stock

    I was told by an old boy that if you gash yourself when cutting Yew it can get infected .Is this true?

    Infection, can be carried on anything I would be more concerned that a substance called Taxine gets into you system, so no chewing the leaves it is poisonous
