Toomer’s Oaks shoots already growing, showing at the corner


Less than two weeks after the Toomer’s Oaks were cut down (but not completely removed), and its predecessors either harvested or trampled, there it is: the first rhizomic shoot from the oak closest to College Street, working its way from the tree’s still very much alive roots toward the sun through a crack in the stone planter.

Until the trees are completely removed after the football season, there will be more, possibly hundreds. They, too, will be collected and sold. Watch a video of Dr. You Know Who talk about it all here.
