I asked about this plant a couple weeks ago but finally got a better photo. Any idea what this could be?

Yes, Yew got it = Taxus sp., likely one of the very common Taxus x media that are typically sheared into boxes and balls.

Thanks everyone! I think you are right after looking up yew plants. Closest I could connect is a dense spreading yew bush. John's point about how most people trim them into a box or round shape would make since why I have been having trouble IDing it.

Yes, that is probably the least pruned example of that plant within 100 miles.

I bet you have neighbors that have itchy clipper fingers that can't wait to have a go at that...

It's actually one of my neighbor's bush, but I prefer it unturned like it is ha
