Where can I find non-cultivar Taxus baccata in the Northeast?

northjersey(6)June 26, 2013

I would like to plant a formal hedge of non-cultivar English yew in northern New Jersey. I can't seem to find a source for this shrub in the US. My goal is to have a 5'-6' privacy screen within four to five years. I like the history behind the European/English yew, so I am reluctant to plant any hybrids.

being conifers.. you might want to check in at the conifer forum..

the peeps who graft .. have all kinds of sources for understock ... which is basically what you are asking for ... but for the fact that i dont think yew is grafted... lol ...

If you have deer, don't even think of it. It's their favorite winter food.

Thanks for the advice. I'll try in the conifer forum. I was thinking of using an electric fence to keep away the deer.
