USA Today’s graphic designers seem to be giving the Toomer’s Oaks a subtle, final shout out in today’s sports section.
The new USA Today circle logo appears to have been turned into the cross section of a tree trunk, complete with rings. The lead story? “Tireless fight ends to save Auburn’s oaks.”

Have we confirmed that it’s because of the Toomer’s Oaks or simply the fact that Arbor Day is this Friday? I haven’t seen a USA Today this week. Has the logo been like that all week or only the Sports section and only for today?

I can confirm that as for today’s USA Today, the sports section (with the Auburn article at the top) is the only one with this logo. I doubt it has anything to do with Arbor Day this Friday.
