A much better way of looking at it! Nice one, but it doesn't explain why some of the older ones weren't cut for bows. Perhaps the fact that no one wanted a bow that could be possessed by the spirits of the dead had something to do with it, especially when you consider the belief that the roots of yews were thought to enter the mouths of the dead and so resurrect them.
