This story made the ABC National News this evening.

I'm betting that the good people of Auburn along with a lot of sympathetic people from all over will find a way to at least partially replace these trees. I know it will not be the same as the Toomer trees were somewhere at 150 years old or more. But as I mentioned earlier, arborists can and do move large trees these days. It will require significant clean up to make sure the herbicide is gone (tebuthiuron is very persistent in soil with a half life of more than two years).
