Taxus canadensis (Canadian Yew) is a conifer native to central and eastern North America, thriving in swampy woods, ravines, riverbanks and on lake shores. Locally called simply “Yew”, this species is also referred to as American Yew or Ground-hemlock.
Should be Taxus sp.
Looking at the habit, T. canadensis
Could be comparing with net image!

The fruit reminds me of the english yew. a taxus. may be taxus baccata. only the person who planted it would know if it came with a tag from the nursery or we did an extensive photography for id purposes. so need more pictures. the red aril is edible, but the black seed (and all parts of the yew) are highly toxic
It was on a roadside.
i hope you took lots of pictures of the whole tree
It was just a beginning and ignorant about the aspects of plant photography then, so not many pictures of the plant.
…, There is no shame in admitting ignorance when one is first learning.
I guess I have improved a bit with the guidance and suggestions from you and other senior members but still a long way to go.
