How to Prune a Yew

Anonymous added on July 16, 2015 | Answered

I have a yew (clipped cone), I think, that needs to be trimmed. It is getting tall and spindly, not dense as I thought. How should I trim it? I want it to keep the tree shape, not a shrub.

Remove all shoots or branches that protrude beyond the base of the tree. Establish a symmetrical round shape at the base, which you can extend up to the tip of the tree, following your desired shape. Remove broken and diseased branches off the tree as well.
