AUBURN, AL (WTVM) -
After two years of extraordinary efforts to save the
poisoned Auburn Oaks at Toomer's Corner, Auburn University plans to remove them
on April 23, weather permitting.
The final opportunity for fans to roll the beloved
Auburn Oaks will follow the A-Day football game April 20 when the university
and City of Auburn host a "Celebrate the Tradition" block party.
university's Tree Preservation Committee does not believe the trees will
survive despite the extensive work the university and others have done to keep
them alive," said Ron Booth, director of project management in Auburn
University Facilities Management. "The decaying wood is a safety issue, and the
only option we have at this point is to remove them."
Auburn University is working with two renowned firms
– Nelson Byrd Woltz Landscape Architects and jB+a – to develop a landscape
master plan for potential redevelopment of Samford Park at Toomer's Corner. The
firms have received significant input from Auburn students, alumni, employees
and others. The final design will be unveiled at the block party on April 20.
The "Celebrate the Tradition" event will begin at 5
p.m. in the College Street and Magnolia Avenue intersection. The event will
feature well-known Auburn speakers, a spirit rally, music from the band Kidd
Blue and one final rolling of the iconic oaks. The event is open to everyone.
