After monitoring the declining health of the Magnolia Oak at Toomer’s Corner, which was planted Feb. 14, Auburn University’s Tree Preservation Committee, Facilities Management Division and tree contractor Tim Thoms decided to replace it, which was done July 8. The College Street Oak planted in February has adapted well; the planting of the oaks was the final step in Phase I of the Samford Park redevelopment project. Phase II began in May with construction of a brick arcing walkway that will lead from Toomer’s Corner to Samford Hall. The latter part of Phase II will take place winter 2016 with the planting of live oaks, descendants of the original Auburn Oaks, along the new walkway.
