Here's my view on the trees.
I'm sorry the trees are dying. Not sorry for the barners so much as for the environment. Updyke is an idiot.... Period but the trees were going to eventually die anyway due to the "tradition" process. I wasn't a part of the "Tiders for Toomers" and have no intention to participate in any event they may have again. I don't want the barners in T-town during our celebrations and/or events so they can continue their deranged tradition without me as they have always done in the past. I don't need them and they don't need me. Whatever they choose to do with the corner is of their own twisted imagination.
