Q.The Tops Of My Taxus Hicksii Yew Look Cut Off. Would An Animal Be The Culprit?

Zone Wethersfield, Connecticut | Scottielak added on August 18, 2021 | Answered

Every day we’re finding clippings on the ground. It started with one and this is happening to the others now. I know they’re poisonous. They are healthy looking, no brown or yellowing

There are a few animals that will eat these shrubs. Deer are notorious for it. Though, they won't usually leave any behind, or on the ground. There is the thought that it could be human caused. Unfortunately, without catching it in the act, or seeing signs of what it could be, it will be hard to say, exactly, what it is.
