AUBURN, AL (WSFA) -

The Auburn community is saying goodbye to a legacy today as crews work to remove the iconic oak trees at Toomer's Corner.

On Saturday, a record crowd gathered at the corner for one final roll and the University unveiled plans for the corner's redesign.

As the work to remove the trees continues, we are posting photos of the workers' progress to the MY12 section of WSFA.com.  Check them out and add your own photos from Toomer's corner.

You can also keep up with the activity on the plains today by watching the live webcam from Toomer's Corner.
