AUBURN, Ala. -- Auburn University is displaying artifacts from the poisoned Toomer's Corner oaks.

Beginning Tuesday, Auburn Libraries' Special Collections and Archives' Department will be displaying countless decorated items, including toilet paper rolls, signs and other novelties that were placed around the poisoned oaks. The items had to be moved because of ongoing efforts to save the trees.

The exhibit will be on display in the campus' library through A-Day weekend, April 16-17.

The Dadeville man accused of poisoning the Toomer's Corner oaks, Harvey Updyke, is scheduled to appear in court at 9 a.m. April 20 before Lee County District Court Judge Russell K. Bush. The 62-year-old Updyke is charged with criminal mischief.
