Auburn To Replace Trees At Toomer’s Corner

The iconic Toomer’s Corner at Auburn University is set to undergo another facelift.

According to reports, the oak trees at Toomer’s Corner will be replaced and new ones will be planted on Saturday because of damage that occurred during a fire in September.

It is the second time in two years that the trees are being replaced.

The current trees were planted in 2015 to replace the oaks which were poisoned by Alabama fan Harvey Updyke. They lasted until Jochen Wiest set fire to one of the trees in September. He was arrested shortly after the incident.

Toomer’s Corner is traditionally “rolled” by Auburn fans following big wins by the Tigers.

A formal announcement is expected later this week.

Let’s hope Auburn has better luck with Toomer’s Corner this time around.
