> I didn't know that there was Taxus in Texas (sorry ;-). I still have some rough cut slabs aging in my woodshed.
Luv the pun, neither did I. Taxin comes from Baccarat from yew
clippings made into the first at least in E. Europe then into taxin.
Kew now has a freak seedling it's cloning cos it has so much taxin in
the bark you don't need to make it into baccarat first.
All I really replied to say was sell the yew to a bowyer! Better than
lemonwood any day or should be. Maybe you could give a piece to a party
you contact to see how it works. Regards Les
