Auburn fans celebrated on Toomer's Corner with the famed oak trees one last time this past weekend. On Tuesday morning, the trees started coming down.

AL.com, which had a live camera on the trees as they were cut down, said the first cut came at 7:22 a.m. The site said more than 100 fans gathered to watch. AL.com said all but the roots of the poisoned oaks would be removed on Tuesday.

Here are some sad images from the removal of the iconic trees:
