The Yew
Sacred Tree of Transformation and Rebirth,
Taxus baccata ,  is an ancient tree species that has survived since before the Ice Age  and as such as been revered and used by humankind throughout the ages.  All races of the Northern Hemisphere, especially the Celts, the Greeks,  the Romans and the North American Indians, have a right and powerful  understanding of this unusual and remarkable tree. Because of its  longevity and its unique way of growing new trunks from within the  original root bole, it has now been estimated that some English Yews are  as much as 4,000 years old, their presence spanning ages of time and  history. No wonder the Yew is associated with immortality, renewal,  regeneration, everlasting life, rebirth, transformation and access to  the Otherworld and our ancestors.
