I was sad to read today about the Auburn tree poisoning. The loss of those ancient live oaks probably means a lot to football fans and anyone who loves the campus, but I am also disturbed even though I root for the other Tigers.

What kind of punishment do you think the person would receive if they catch him or her? Am I a crazy plant person to think the punishment should be just as severe as if someone poisoned an animal mascot, like the UGA bulldog?
