AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Officials at Auburn University have announced the iconic oak trees at Toomer's Corner will be removed.
University officials made the announcement Friday and said in a statement that the trees are unlikely to survive despite efforts to save them after they were poisoned with a powerful herbicide.
University officials say a new landscaping plan will be unveiled and the school will host a block party at Toomer's Corner on April 20 to give fans a final opportunity to gather near the landmarks.
It's unclear when the trees will be removed.
Harvey Updyke Jr. is accused of poisoning the trees and is scheduled to go to trial April 8.
The school plans to construct alternative structures for students and fans to gather around after big wins and on other special occasions.
