bleeding yew trees

Two of my yew trees look like they are bleeding from where the trunk splits into two. Is this common I have never seen it before! Should I or my yew trees be worried ?

    Hi Wildflower, it's not uncommon, so nothing to worry about.  Do a google search for 'bleeding yew' for some interesting reading - "The Bleeding Yew of Nevern" is a well known one.

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
  • hi Bob Thanks for your reply. I have done that and can assure you I dont have any swinging monks in my garden !
