Do you have any big plans this Valentine's Day weekend? Why not make the trip down to Auburn and experience the historical replanting of the oaks at Toomer's Corner?
It has been almost three years since the day Auburn University announced the poisoning of the original oaks at Toomer's Corner. Though the trees may have died, the spirit of the tradition they represented lives on.
Once the poisoned oaks were removed in 2013, the university constructed metal wires for the students to r*** while the new, healthy oaks were grown off-site and the soil was replaced. Now, the soil at Toomer's Corner has finally been declared free of poison and the new oaks are ready to be planted
Saturday, Feb. 14, work on the oaks will begin at 8 a.m. and the planting should be complete later that afternoon.
You won't want to miss out on this historic opportunity!
