Auburn University Horticulturist Gary Keever says the oaks at Toomer's Corner are showing signs of growth. "This means the trees still have food, and are still alive," he said.
The oaks were allegedly poisoned in 2010 with Spike 80 DF. "This gives us hope that the trees might make it if they are starting to produce more foliage," Keever said.
Keever along with other university officials will go up in a lift on Friday to check the leaf development and the branches up top.
