I have a yew bush that had to be pruned back about 8 inches because it was encroaching on my lawn. I now have many branches (mostly towards the bottom) that look like stubs - the branch was basically cut right in the middle and there are no green needles left. Should I remove these stubs entirely or will new foliage grow on them?

It has been my experience that taxis will not push new growth on a branch that does not already have some green on it. You may want to give it a year and see if anything happens. The alternative to remove the entire branch will leave the bottom of the taxis bare since it will not push new growth where the limbs have been removed.
