The Pacific yew, also known as Taxus brevifolia, is a small to medium-sized evergreen tree native to the Pacific Northwest. It contains the substance 'taxol' in its shoots and bark, which has shown potential as an anti-cancer drug. While the tree was never commercially harvested due to its endangered status, paclitaxel (taxol) is now produced from extracts of cultivated yews of other species.
