Burned Toomer’s Corner tree off limits this weekend


AUBURN, Ala. (WIAT) — It’s homecoming on the plains and because of last weekend’s fire at Toomer’s Corner, fans will only be able to roll one of the trees.

The university says until further assessment of the tree on Magnolia Avenue can be made it will be off limits. The 10 descendant oak trees lining the walkway near Toomer’s Corner are also off limits for rolling.

Jochen Wiest is facing charges for intentionally setting the tree on fire.
