YARMOUTH — Live and silent auctions of crafts made from Herbie, the 217-year-old Elm tree that was cut down in January, will be held Saturday, Nov. 13.

The “Tree for All” event will include music, hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar from 5-9 p.m. at Delorme Map, at 2 Delorme Drive .

Tickets are $20 per person or $35 a couple before the event and $200 for an eight-person table. The night of the event tickets will be $25 per person or $45 per couple.

All proceeds will benefit the Yarmouth Tree Trust.

In addition to wooden crafts made from Herbie, Tree Warden Deb Hopkins said many local businesses have contributed items for the auction, including dinners, sports and symphony tickets, clothing and gift certificates.

“All proceeds will benefit the tree trust,” Hopkins said. “I am hoping to start planting trees next year.”
