Yew Tree

lindsay82 added on June 8, 2016 | Answered

About 6 months ago my husband cut back a column yew tree. My 2 year old son helped him pick up the branches, etc. to clear away. I have read how poisonous all parts of the yew tree are so I am now concerned that it could have been harmful to my son. Please could you tell me if it is harmful/poisonous from touching it or only if ingested? Thank you for your help. Lindsay.
