The Yew at Llangernyw

Review

The captivating village of Llangernyw is home to a very special,ancient Yew tree, situated within the grounds of the 15th Century, St. Digain’s Parish Church in Conwy, Wales. Imagine what stories this 4000-5000 year old tree could tell us, what historical events have taken place as this Welsh wonder stood, slowly unfurling its evergreen leaves. Narrow, dark green waxy leaves spiral around the deeply furrowed trunk. Amazingly, this beautiful tree is a survivor from Prehistoric times, germinating probably in the Bronze Age. Yew trees survive by regenerating and the actual centre of the Llangernyw is a void, with the orginal growth dying over the Milennia, younger wood grows around the void, drawing nutrients from the prehistoric roots. In 2002 the Tree Council designated this beautiful tree as one of 50 great trees, and has even inspired poets and songwriters to wax lyrical.
