Q.Yew Tree Advice
I have several yew trees that have been stifled by being surrounded by other trees and starved of light. They are each about 6 foot tall but branches & foliage are fairly sparse. I would like to move them to a boundary and use as hedging but if I do so is there a good chance they will survive the move and recover & develop more branches & foliage ?
