Mulching With Yew Branches - Knowledgebase Question

Question by gracecheck

I'm taking over the neglected front yard of my apartment building. May I use the trimmings from the (formerly) overgrown yew bushes in the yard as mulch for my plantings? Is there a pH or other chemical or reason not to? I figured I'd put what little money there is in the garden budget into compost, as the soil has been ignored for years.

I can't think of any reason offhand why not. It would probably be best to chop them up first, though. Alternatively, you could chip them and add them to your own compost pile.
