Auburn University plans to replace the oak trees at Toomer's Corner if they die.

Auburn president Jay Gogue has accepted a committee's recommendation to move at least one large tree to the site where Auburn fans have long celebrated victories.

The tree's survival prospects will be clearer in the spring if they have any new leaf growth, but they have continued to go downhill.

The trees were poisoned, allegedly by Alabama fan Harvey Updyke, after Auburn's a win over the Crimson Tide in the 2010 season.
