I think it is, Betty

There are many kinds of yew, but I assume I can’t discern which one this is.
Reading about these, there are only a few that can be kept smaller through trimming. I never realized some varieties could grow into a large tree!  

It was also interesting to learn how poisonous they are, and that they were once used to develop a cancer drug, now created in a test tube. It was actually one of the drugs given to me when I had breast cancer.
I’d rather leave it as a generic one than misidentify it by guessing.

Oh, well!  Thanks, John!
