“In some types of Christianity, yew is planted around graveyards not only to remind visitors of eternal life but to keep the dead from wandering from their graves before Judgment Day. Some Norse Pagans believed that precisely because yew stood between two worlds, it could trap unwary souls inside itself. Burning yew as an incense is still a traditional means for raising the dead and thus in a sense, entrapping them.”
