In order to keep the Auburn Tiger landmark known as Toomer’s Corner safe, Auburn has cleared the area and pruned the trees which were allegedly poisoned by Harvey Updyke.
The 2012 Football season is about to approach for the Auburn Tigers and they are preparing for the tradition of rolling Toomer’s Corner with toilet paper after a win.
Dr. Saturday explained it best:
Harvey Updyke, an Alabama fan, is accused of poisoning the trees in 2010, but the poisoning was not discovered until 2011. Since then, every effort has been made to save the 131-year-old trees, but the long-term prognosis has not been good. Still, the committee charged with saving the trees thinks the traditionally rolling won’t do any more damage.
Hopefully the trees survive as recover from the poisoning.
