Auburn Tree Not Expected to Survive

Just like an other win at Jordan-Hare fans roll the famous Toomer’s Corner.

Things were not as smooth for the Tiger’s after the victory over LSU… one of the trees were set on fire.

An Auburn fan witnessed the man set the tree on fire and chased him down. 29-year-old, Jochen West, was immediately taken into custody by Auburn Police for a Class A misdemeanor. At that time, the tree was expected to survive.


The tree is not expected to make it. Multiple branches in the canopy of the tree have died since the fire. It will continued to be monitored throughout the rest of the year.

Toomer’s Corner is one of Auburn’s many legacies and there are NO PLANS to remove the tree.

Wiest has now been charged with felony criminal mischief, public intoxication and desecration of a venerable object. The damage to the tree will be approximately $15,000 to $20,000.
