Center Of Yew Tree Has Yellow Needles That Are Shedding

Question From: New Albany, Ohio, United States
Q: I have a 4 year old yew that is covered with new growth but the center has yellow needles and shedding. the outside looks great. I'm guessing this is from lack of sunlight, air, etc. Just normal behavior of taxus. There aren't any needles that look like they've been eaten. The soil isn't too wet. It is planted on the North side but protected from wind, and is in full shade. It's done fine since I planted it 4 years ago. In fact this spring it has the most new growth since I planted it. My concern is it seems like the yellowing is moving closer to the tip of each branch. Thanks

A: Lack of sun is probably the issue . Yews are not shade shrubs. Move it. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
