Toomer's Oaks - How far should Auburn University go?



I've been racking my brain like a mad scientist for the past few days trying to conceive some solution to save the Toomer's Oaks. I'm not an agricultural expert, I'm not a botanist, heck I've never even planted flowers, despite all of that I have put hours into 'research' trying to find some nugget of information that will lend hope to this situation.

I know I've not uncovered any information Auburn's official Toomer's Task Force didn't already know. I know that I am so far in over my head on this that saying, "I'm in over my head" isn't even a fair representation.

 

What I do know is this: Auburn University should attack this issue with every possible resource it has at its disposal. Sit back and think about all of the Auburn University related merchandise you have purchased over the course of your lifetime. Shirt, hats, chairs, cups, stickers, pens, Christmas ornaments, artwork, snuggies(blushes), memorbilia, tickets, DVD's, books, tuition, etc. The list goes on and on. \

 

The University owes it to us; the fans, the current students,  the alumni, the parents who are sending their kids there to give them something better than they had.

I'm not saying that Auburn won't do this or isn't planning on this already. I just know that I will be very disappointed if all that is done is some soil sampling and soil replacing. I want a herculean effort to save these trees.

 

What do you all think? Should Auburn University pull out all the stops? Will Auburn University pull out all the stops?

We're all just trying to have a good time here. Don't be a jerk, and we won't have a problem with you. War Eagle!
