Not every piece of the wood will be for sale.
In addition to the sure to amazing bowl that will be made from a piece of the Toomer’s Oaks and displayed at AU’s Jule Collins Smith Museum of Art, large pieces of the oaks—likely those removed from the trees in last year’s pruning (and hopefully that tiger head!) —will be on display in various university buildings.
“There are going to be some pieces around campus that are going to be in their natural state around campus for fans to see,” says Jennifer Blackmon, AU’s Manager of Trademark Marketing and Promotion.
Possibly locations currently include Samford Hall and Auburn’s athletic museum.
