Subject: RE: Lyr Req: The Yew Tree
Insane Beard recently reminded me of the Fortingall Yew in Perthshire, Scotland, which I recall visiting about forty-five years ago when friends of my parents lived nearby. Estimates of its age range from a minimum two thousand years up to nine thousand years. Even two thousand years makes it the oldest tree in Europe.
