The yew tree is a non-magical but highly effective wood when used to create ranged weapons due to its elasticity. All parts of a yew tree are highly toxic except the bright red berry-like aril that surrounds the seed, which allows birds to consume the arils and distribute the seeds in their droppings.

A yew tree is long lived and slow-growing; the bark is scaly brown and the leaves are a long and dark green. The yew is an evergreen tree.
