AUBURN, AL - APRIL 23: The sun rises the morning that the live oak trees will be cut down by crews from the Asplundh tree service on April 23, 2013 at Toomer's Corner in Auburn, Alabama.

Fabled Auburn tradition to finally return in 2016

It's time!

Auburn fans, you might want to have a six-pack of toilet paper handy for future tailgates.

According to Jim Little of the Auburn-Opelika News, the new oak trees at Toomer's Corner have been declared healthy enough for Auburn fans to resume the tradition of rolling the trees.

"The rolling itself doesn't have any impact on the trees," Keever said. "We're going to remove the toilet paper by hand. There should be a minimal, if any, impact in contrast to the fire hoses that we used to use."

Keever said as long as fans respect the fence, the trees should do fine.

The tradition gained national attention five years ago, when Alabama fan Harvey Updyke famously poisoned the oaks at Toomer's Corner after an Alabama loss to Auburn in the annual Iron Bowl. Updyke later pleaded guilty to a felony charge of damaging animal or crop facilities, and the original oaks eventually had to be removed after efforts to keep the trees alive failed.

Be nice to the new trees, everyone.
