This wood is the least stressed and top quality. The kiln dried wood is $10 per board foot. The wood is from Yarmouth’s 217-year-old American elm tree, fondly known as “Herbie”, formerly New England’s largest American elm tree.
Souvenirs from Herbie will be available at the Yarmouth Clam Festival, July 16-18, in the Chamber of Commerce information booth on Memorial Green and at a final sale and auction at Delorme Map from November 12-13.
Proceeds from wood sales will benefit the Yarmouth Tree Trust, a program to plant new street trees in Yarmouth.
