White stuff on yew?

Post by Mary Elizabet » Fri, 14 Jul 2000 04:00:00



I finally found the loppers and got back into the overgrown foundation
shrubs to chop down a maple seedling that had started next to my window,
but in the process noticed that one of the big yews had what looked like
a coating of confectioner's sugar on part of the trunk.  The yew is
about four feet tall and only one part of the trunk is covered with this
stuff -- about six inches' worth.  Any idea what this is?
