AUBURN, AL (WTVM) -  Horticulture experts at Auburn University say both trees at Toomer's corner are now showing signs of poison.

Up until last week, the tree on Magnolia was looking really good. However, experts say the tree is now beginning to show signs of the herbicide.

They say one branch in particular has brown, small leaves.

Meanwhile, the oak on College Street has been showing signs of poison since the leaves first started emerging.  However, experts say there are sections of that oak that have normal, healthy leaves.

Experts say they are waiting to see how the trees will process the poison and if they will begin to drop their leaves.
