Auburn to do makeover on Toomer's trees

The two oaks at Toomer's Corner in Auburn, Ala. which are traditionally covered with toilet paper following an Auburn University football victory are getting some much needed work.

On Saturday, specialists in the care of live oaks from the regional office of Bartlett Tree Experts in Tucker, Ga., will perform a horticultural version of "Extrme Makeover." Bartlet personnel will evaluate the structural integrity of the trees, remove dead or damaged limbs, install cables to brace weak branches, break up compacted soil around the roots, add organic matter and fertilizer around the base and treat for insects.
