1199 Ancient sacred yew tree. Taxus wellichiana

1199 Ancient sacred yew tree. Taxus wellichiana

When a child is born a bamboo wand is tied to the trunk of this tree. By placing a wand on the tree the child for whom it is placed is assured of a good life.

This is the Taxus tree that has antitumor properties and is highly sought. An individual, not from this area, offered the community $15,000 for the tree. Without hesistation the offer was refused.
